Stamp-cataloguesEvery stamp collector will agree that a good reference is very important in order to identify stamps in his or her stamp collection.
Since the early days of philately there were different pusblishers of stamp catalogues.
The earliest published stamp catalogue was issued in France in the year 1861  by Oscar Berger-Levrault.
Nowadays there are four commonly used catalogues that cover the whole world. These are:

Michel (German)
Scott (American)
Stanley Gibbons (English)
Yvert et Tellier (French)
Freestampcatalogue (online, English)

Next to these large world catalogues, almost every country has it’s own stamp catalogue for it’s stamps.
Although there are not that many, there are also some topical stamp catalogues which list stamps from the world of a certain topic.
