Table 38
Notes:
38.1 All Cape Juby's stamps are overprints.
38.2 The three Ile Rouad stamps issued in January 1916, being vertical overprints on French Offices in the Levant stamps are all priced at around 3250 / 200. The thirteen stamps issued in December 1916, being horizontal overprints on French Offices in the Levant stamps are priced in the range 50p to 40, the first of the issue being 55p. That's the one for me.
38.3 Scott lists Baghdad under Mesopotamia. Every stamp is a surcharge or overprint of a Turkish stamp. Scott includes a section of Officials not mentioned in Mackay or Gibbons. All of these stamps are out of my price range.
38.4 I cannot find Long Island in Scott or Gibbons. Woods This is Philately explains that it is a Turkish island Uzun, called Long Island by the Brits in occupation during WW1. They used overprinted Turkish revenue stamps. There were also "a few hundred" primitive, imperforate, typewritten stamps. I have asked the experts at FICC for advice.
38.5 For Ruanda-Urndi, Gibbons starts in 1916 with a set of Belgian Congo stamps overprinted Ruanda (SG1 to SG7a), then a set overprinted Urundi (SG8 to SG14a), then a couple of sets with other overprints (long and short), before the 1924 issue of Belgian Congo stamps overprinted Ruanda Urundi. The this last is the point at which Scott joins in (starting with Sc6 - I don't know why). Rather more sensibly, I feel, Scott classifies all these earlier issues as German East Africa under Belgian occupation.
38.6 Gibbons regards Salonica as a subset of British Levant, under British Field Office in Salonica and given separate numbering from SG-S1. I cannot find this stamp in Scott. British Offices Abroad - Turkish Empire section.
38.7 For Italian Offices in China, Scott numbers Peking and Tientsin separately, Gibbons sequentially. In both cases there were two issues in 1917: all of the first (upper case overprint) are expensive, the second issue (lower case overprint) more reasonable.
38.8 Given that I have not yet found Epirus in Scott, Koritsa is also eluding me.
38.9 Gibbons begins Saudi Arabia in 1916 with sections Hejaz (1916), Nejdi Occupation of Hejaz (1925), Hehaz and Nejd (1926) and then Saudi Arabia from 1932, numbering the stamps sequentially. Scott's approach is similar, under Saudi Arabia with Hejaz (1916),  Nedji Administration of the Hejaz (1925), Kingdom of Hedaz-Nejd (1926) and Saudi Arabia from 1934, Scott prefixes Hajaz as ScL, begins the 1925 Administration as Sc1 and thereafter numbers sequentially.
38.10 German Eastern Command in Gibbons is German Occupied Lithuania in Scott.

Table 39


Notes:
39.1 For Iraq, Scott starts with the 1923 issue above, "Issues under British Mandate". Gibbons begin in 1918 with stamps from Turkey surcharged IRAQ IN BRITISH OCCUPATION.
39.2 Gibbons begins Yugoslavia in 1918 with issues for Bosnia and Herzegovenia. then moves on to sections for Croatia and Slovenia. SG164 is the first in the fourth section, Issues for the Whole Kingdom. Scott's approach is similar, with local issues for Bosnia and Herzegovia (numbered SC-1L), Croatia-Slavonia (Sc-2L) and Slovenia (Sc-3L) and the general issues for use throughout the kingdom - Sc1 / SG164. There is a fourth region for the Carintha Plebiscite containing semi-postals only, a Slovenia overprint, see next page.
39.3 Latvia #1 is a particular favourite, being printed on the back of German military maps. Scott #1 is imperforate, #2 perforated: Gibbons specifies #14 as either.
39.4 Although not noted in my copies of Scott, FICC (First Issues Newsletter, Vol. 7, Issue 1, Page 4, 1998) states that Czechoslovakia #2 and #3 were issued first in Dec 1918 and #1 and the other issues in early 1919. Gibbons starts with two different stamps. In 1939,
Germany occupied Czechoslovakia, divided it into the German Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia and the independent state of Slovakia. The 1945 issues are the first after reunification according to Scott and Gibbons.
39.5 Scott includes a Local 1918 Official for Czechoslovakia not mentioned in Mackay.
39.6 Czechoslovakia issued the first Personal Delivery stamp (for delivery to the specific addressee). See First Firsts.
39.7 Czechoslovakia's first commem. is also its first real charity.
39.8 Scott lists French Post Offices in Tangier within French Morocco, thus SC72.
39.9 Latvia's first Charity issue was printed on the back of local banknotes. Scott and Gibbons distinguish between the varieties of the set of four stamps: Sc-B1 to B4, SG50-53 (brown and green design on the back, Western Army notes}; B5-B8, SG46-49 (blue design, Bolshevist notes); B9-B12, SG54-57 (brown, green and red).
39.10 Lithuania's first issues are primitivist and expensive. I'll settle for a slightly later printing and also show the first proper stamp, the Sc30.
39.11 Gibbons numbers Trentino (1918), Venezia Giulia (1918), General Issues (1919) and Dalmatia (1919) sequentially under Austrian Territories acquired by Italy.
