Philatelic Index-Comprehensive listing by topic to 1980

In 1980 I set out to build up an Index on Egyptian philately. This meant spending many hours at The National Philatelic library, then based at the Liberal Party headquarters near the Embankment Tube station. John Grimmer, rather nervously, lent me the Editor's run of the QC. I also cross-referenced other indexes so may not have seen some of the articles. For the L'OP and QC I made notes on any reference within an article, irrespective of its title, so that an article on a cover franked with a Second Issue stamp would be referenced under Second Issue, under Postal Rates if mentioned, and so on. This was all done before the days of computers - well, I did have a ZX81 with 1K of memory - so the index is handwritten and since my optical recognition software makes no sense of it so I have left it in pictorial form as published. Of course it takes the QC only up to 1980, but after that the QC index on the website can be used.

The stamp section was published in QC as a supplement in 1983 and here is left as a whole in pdf form.

The postal history part has laid dormant all this time but is now published here. It was left, however, in a very rough form and a week's work of tidying and part collating leaves it still needing much work. But as this may never take place I am putting it up as is in the hope that it will still be of use to members.

Because the task was carried over two years, there is some inconsistence when indexing from the various magazines, so scanning though the entirety may be worthwhile.
