Am confident I am “among the last to arrive at the party”. However, still thought I would share a trio of ME philatelic resources I recently came across.

Middle East Philatelic Bulletin. Published online quarterly by Tobias Zywietz. (zobbel dot de). This must truly be a labor of love, as each issue runs upwards of 200 pages. And it available to interested readers at no cost. Includes new content, “items from the archives”, and limited content from specialty publications. As the moniker states, the scope is the entire ME.

The Arab World Philatelist. Editor: R. Howard Courtney. Six issues. 32 to 36 pages/issue. Published from 1978 to 1982. Believe Courtney is/was a Chicago area dealer. Despite the passage of 40 years each issue still offers content of interest to a ME-focused philatelist. Particularly enjoyed reading the Q&A feature. (All six issues available online. Printed copies of select issues available via eBay from Mervin Chaplin.)

Journal of Arabian Philately. Publisher/editor: Mervin Chaplin. Two issues produced, 1971-72. (Copies of the issues available via eBay from Mervin Chaplin.). Believe this was the first publication of its kind produced in North America.

Happy reading.

Jim

Thanks for posting this reminder.
The standard of this publication has been maintained for a considerable time.

Here is my post from 2016:

This has just been published and is a free download from Zobbel

In my view the Author Tobias Zywietz has done a great job!
