The listings for the Arab Gulf States are dedicated with warm gratitude to Joe Ross of California, a stamp collector and researcher of incomparable expertise, commitment and energy. It is largely due to Joe's efforts that the revenue stamps of the Arab Gulf States are on the philatelic map at all, and he personally masterminded the listings in most of the recent editions of Barefoot's British Commonwealth Revenues catalogue. Joe has been a constant source of inspiration and encouragement to me in my revenue research, and I hope to have the opportunity of collaborating with him in future projects.
