Transcribing the inscription

  • Citrakayah by Citrakayah

    Can anyone make out what the writing on the bottom says? I can't; the first word appears to be "Zinn" or "Zun," and after that it just gets worse. Second word I think is "very," though.

    Is the first word of the 2nd line "Joseph"?

    Yours very truly

    An article about Prof Prestwich follows his portrait entitled "Eminent Living Geologists".

    (I knew my transcribing skills from AnnoTate and Shakespeare's World would come in handy one day!)
