Does anyone recognise in the attached paragraph some characters resembling my name? If so, what are the characters? Thank you!

A rough translation, I hope it helps:

"There're many books introducing rubik's cube and its solution, the number of books of this kind published each year was counted by Georges Helm as below: 14 in 1979, 52 in 1980, 174 in 1981, 70 in 1982, 15 in 1983."

By the way, would you please tell me the name of the book that the words are quoted from?

Thank you!
Can you tell me which logograms (Hanzi characters) are used to write my name?
This is the book: http://www.helm.lu/gallery2/main.php?g2_itemId=16003

Thanks, I didn't realize this is from The Cube so that a translation into English is totally unnecessary. I should have read the book more carefully.

Thanks again, chuchudengren.
To search for the characters I only had the below calligraphy - which I was told represented one of the possible transcriptions of my name in Chinese.

For shame Georges, you should have had Matt write it over and over in many different ways last year... :lol: :lol:
