Books, Magazines etc. on Egyptian Philately

Produced by the Egyptian postal authorities for the Exhibition in Philadelphia in 1951, this 214-page volume is as much a guide to Egypt as to its stamps and postal history, though Ernest Kehr contributes some useful essays.
Part four of Khetcho Hagopian's publications issued in 1987, it gives copious details of the stamps issued by Egypt for the Gaza strip from 1948 to 1967, first as overprinted Farouk issues and later incorporating the word Palestine. Also illustrates first day covers.
A Harry Hayes reprint in 1977 of an original published in 1898.

It gives names of the post offices operating at that time in an idiosyncratic transliteration that Fiske was trying to popularise as "easier" than the accepted norm. Also listed are Egyptian names of foreign places and personal names in Egypt. Peter Feltus produced a reprint in 1991, adding several postcards of Egyptian post offices.
Published by the Egyptian Postal Authority to extol the delights of collecting the stamps of Egypt, it covers the Republican issues from 1952 to 1969 and gives details of the numbers printed.

Its opening paragraph is classic: "Where ever you are in the world you can collect Egyptian stamps. Approach the Philatelic Office..." a statement as true now as it was then.
