About this Item

Title

  • The postage stamps of the Hejaz, Jeddah and Nejd; a complete and illustrated price-list of the 1924 provisionals, including all subsequent issues up to June 1926.

Summary

  • The Postage Stamps of the Hejaz, Jeddah and Nejd. A Complete and Illustrated Price-List of the 1924 Provisionals, Including all Subsequent Issues up to June 1926 is a sale catalog of postage and revenue stamps issued by several jurisdictions in Arabia. It is a companion volume to the same author's The Postal Issues of Hejaz, Jeddah and Nejd, which is also presented in World Digital Library. The stamps in the catalog were issued during the final years of the Kingdom of Hijaz, before that territory was overrun by forces of 'Abd al-Aziz ibn Sa'ud (1880-1953), founder of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Many of the stamps were issued with overprints to signify changes in jurisdiction or price. The price list includes non-postal tax and newspaper stamps and other provisional issues. The work is illustrated with examples of overprinting and stylistic variations. Advertising text on the back pages and cover of the slim volume provides information about the operation of the firm "D. Field," i.e., David Field and his wife Edith, publishers of the magazine West End Philatelist. Little is known about author D.F. Warin, who died in 1935 at a young age. Income from postage and fiscal stamps was an important revenue source in the embryonic states of the Arabian Peninsula until they began to extract commercial quantities of oil in the 1950s.
