     The three airmail stamps issued by Lebanon in 1961 are identified in the Scott catalog as “Pres. Chelab and Map of Lebanon.” The map is an outline map of the country with rivers, mountains and cities located and identified with Arabic inscriptions. The three cities on the coast are (top to bottom) Tripoli, Beirut, and Sidon, the one east of Beirut is probably Zahlah. The mountains are the Lebanon mountains. From top to bottom the rivers are: Nahr al Kabir, Nahr Jaouzi, Nahr Ibrahim, unidentified, Nahr Awwali, and Narh Litani. The red area in the lower left is Syria.
