Egypt - Congres International

Although I was originally trying to restrict my collection to the topics listed on the side bar of this Blog, I came across this lovely set of mint stamps and could not resist getting them :¬). I think there's something reassuringly old fashioned about them and I've now started collecting similar items so watch this space...
They show the God Thot writing King Fuad's name in hieroglyphics. They were issued in 1925 for the Congres International de Geographie, International Geography Congress, in Cairo (SG 123-5).
