Help to decipher name please
« on: Tuesday 29 January 19 01:48 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
Could anyone please help with this person's name. I think the initial maybe a J, but I  haven't got a clue what the surname reads. ( it looks as if it ends with an el as the e looks like the one in November) The beginning of the name looks like either a H to me or a G, it's driving me nuts. The more I look at it - the more I haven't a clue.

The only writing to compare it to is the date below
Thanks for any help

It looks a bit like J Gleason but... the detached letters don't seem to be part of the surname although looking at 'November' they should be  :-\

That is certainly closer to what I am seeing, before seeing others answers.

As Annie says, some context would be good.

Hi

It's from an old book that I  am reading ( The Pageant of the century, Odhams Press LTD)

I am very curious about the name because the last entry in print in the book is August 1933 - and yet the signature in the book of the original owner is dated Nov 1933-  That seems amazing to me that from writing the last entry, to going to print, to getting bound hardcover and then sold in a shop has only taken around 3 months.
I am wondering if he was a journalist for the press( odhams) .

There is no published date in the book, and most online old bookshops have put the published date of 1934 because the book is about the years 1900 to 1933.( but it stops in August of that year)

I am really curious :)
Thank you for the help
Kind regards

Just a guess but is it possible the signature was done just prior to being printed (that page) as it may have been noticed it hadn't been signed?

Or...may have been the 1st copy, gifted to someone (by the author), straight after print?
