The book has no Author, or Authors, so I don't know who wrote it.
Odham press employed journalists.
 
There is only a foreword by H. V Moreton ( who used to work for them before he became a famous published travel writer)

It's just I find it very curious the date of the signature ( on front flyleaf) is so soon after the last printed entry in the book. It seems very quick to print, to the point of sale, unless it was a gift to someone who worked there at the press, or a gift to someone from a worker at the press.

 It also seemed odd to me as there is a lack of Dear, To or from  - so I was leaning on the side that it wasn't a gift to him ,and J pleasence either bought it himself ( or herself) , which seems really fast publishing to sale,  or he worked at the press, hence why the narrow time frame of dates, which would make more sence to me.
( I over think things sometimes lol)

Thank you all for deciphering the name, it was looking like googly gook to me .
Kind regards :)
