    MIDDLE EAST STAMP COLLECTION WITH POSTAL HISTORY.  Old time collection on homemade pages, literally filled with many better ptgs/shades, some unlisted by Scott, from several countries both mint and used.  The Turkey is outstanding with many of the early surcharges and overprints, then you have similar for Egypt and Iran (some forgeries not counted, but many better genuine items present), followed by a good showing of Syria, Libya, Lebanon, and most of the Arab states and emirates.  There are also 60 odd covers / cards / postal stationery in a stock book with many better items including censors, postal tax usages tied on cover (several scarcer items here), Bushire usages, scarce early Iran parcel tag used internally, better more modern p. sty from the 1970s that had limited printings and are quite scarce now, etc.  A truly eclectic specialized holding for the specialist in this area!
