Iraq, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria
||More than five years have passed since the last edition of the MICHEL Overseas Title 10.1 Northern Arabia and Iran. This pause is not only reflected in 1100+ new MICHEL numbers that have been included in this new edition in the form of novelties, including 800 new colour photos, but also in distinctly modified MICHEL appraisals.
That is because after revising the market, the Editorial Team has adapted numerous quotations. Specially the trend to pay even more for rare pieces that are already expensive has continued in the last five years. Collectors in possession of the overprint stamps from the time of the British occupation of Baghdad of 1917, for instance, should examine them closely as numerous issues, such as MiNo. 6 on the Turkish MiNo. 335, were able to more than double their appraised values in cancelled as well as mint condition.

This Michel Catalog Nordarabien und Iran 2022/203 O10.1 contains the stamps issued by all countries in the greater region of Northern Arabia and the Levant with the states of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Iran as well as Israel and the autonomous Palestine territories. It offers collectors a glimpse into countries which are currently difficult to visit. All countries in this reference book are represented from the very start to the latest issues available.
As is the case for every new edition of any MICHEL title, the descriptions as well as the price quotations in this Michel Catalog Nordarabien und Iran 2022/203 O10.1 were meticulously reviewed and updated wherever it was necessary. Particularly issues from Lebanon as well as from the British occupation of Baghdad show a tendency for price increases. All territories featured in this edition are now updated to the latest state of research.
In the editorial process we were able to replace numerous old pictures by sharper scans. Nearly 300 new colour photos can be found throughout the whole volume, plus the depictions of all the novelties that were recorded between the 41st Edition from 2017 and this 42nd Edition published in 2022/2023. That is a total of over 1100 new MICHEL numbers with 800 new photos in colour. The systematic overview of the cedar pattern stamps issued by Lebanon is also in colour. Add to that the stamps of the Island of Ruad, which supplement the Syrian territory for the first time. This edition therefore caters even more to collectors than its predecessors.
Novelties recorded in MICHEL Rundschau up to and including No. 7/2022 are listed in this edition; therefore issues as new as 2022 have been included depending on information available to us. A subscription to MICHEL Rundschau starting with No. 8/2022 or to MICHEL Online is recommended so as to keep your cataloguing updated and miss no subsequent novelties.
The Editorial Team wants to thank all assistants, dealers, examiners and collectors who supported the processing of this reference book with information, suggestions, price quotations and supplementary details. Their support alone has enabled us to make the Michel Catalog Nordarabien und Iran 2022/203 O10.1 once again the most updated standard reference work about overseas philately.
We hope that you will be pleased with this catalogue and its new design and that you will have great fun with your collection.
Schwaneberger Publishing House
The Editorial Team
Users of the MICHEL catalogs value the comprehensive and detailed listings of collectable items. The MICHEL catalogs are among the best in the world when it comes to details, comprehensiveness and illustration. MICHEL products have been awarded well over 600 medals (including 31 gold), diplomas and honorary prizes in the course of the company’s history. The expertise of the Schwaneberger publishing house’s staff is outstandingly represented in the MICHEL catalogs.
The colourful, varied range of products includes standard and special-edition catalogues for Germany, Europe and overseas. There is also philatelic literature, the MICHEL-Exklusiv album, the MICHEL Colour Guide, the MICHEL-Lux examination lamp and the MICHEL-Rundschau monthly magazine. More than 85 different products in total.
MICHEL also enjoys a good reputation in electronic publishing thanks to various software programs, websites and e-catalogs. It is no wonder that the MICHEL catalogs have been known for years as the “philatelists’ bible”. However, bearing this accolade brings with it the responsibility of always remaining at the top with regard to quality.
The 669,000th MICHEL catalog number was issued recently. A look at the most important of the 85 different MICHEL catalogs reveals that the catalogues for Europe and overseas alone make up some 25,000 catalog pages. They contain 314,000 pictures and 1,800,000 price quotations. Most of this information is stored in powerful picture and text databases and is consulted, revised and corrected for each new edition of a MICHEL catalog. And of course that also applies to each individual page, irrespective of which MICHEL catalog it comes from. MICHEL goes to great lengths on its customers’ behalf. MICHEL’s editorial team spends an average of 45 minutes on research for each new set of stamps. Around 18,000 new stamps appear each year, which are then catalogued and published in the MICHEL-Rundschau, as well as in the relevant MICHEL catalog and online catalogue.
It is more than 100 years since the stamp dealer Hugo MICHEL from Apolda in Thüringen published the first MICHEL stamp catalogue in 1909. He thereby created a product that would be continually be improved, but never surpassed. In the same year, publisher and philatelic editor Hugo Schwaneberger founded a publishing company that bore his name. The philatelist, who was well known in his field, created the Schwaneberger Album, the first album to adopt a scientific approach.Owing to the great demand for MICHEL catalog, Hugo MICHEL was no longer able to dedicate himself to his career as a stamp dealer. He therefore sold the rights to the publisher Schwaneberger. The catalogue, which had only covered Europe until that point, was expanded by the new publishing house to include overseas countries.
Hugo MICHEL continued to edit the catalogue supplement, which is today known as the MICHEL-Rundschau. The company was then bought by the publisher Eugen Berlin. He moved it to Munich in 1950 where he came across a company, the Carl Geber printing works (now the Gerber Satz und Gerber publishing house) that was able to draw up the complicated catalogue typesetting. The publishing rights went to the Hohenester/Gerber families who assigned them to the publishing house, now trading as the “Schwaneberger Verlag”.
At the turn of the century other stamp catalogues had already appeared, but the remarkable success of the MICHEL catalog was attributed to its sophisticated and comprehensive cataloguing system. The stamps were numbered successively from the first number for each country, yet at the same time organised according to various sub-categories and genres, and described as fully as possible. This system was refined over the years and adapted where necessary - but never had to be changed! In fact, the MICHEL numbering system has become standard in Germany. This is underscored by the numerous licence contracts that the Schwaneberger Verlag has concluded with other publishers. All stock lists of German dealers are organised according to the MICHEL numbering system. Collectors exchange, buy and sell using MICHEL numbers.
