I came across this apparently new book on Egyptian orders and medals while trolling Ebay, several copies are available from an Egypt-based seller. I have no additional information on the book other than what is in the listing, and no connection to the seller (other than being a very satisfied customer of his in numerous transactions over several years). The book’s author is an Egyptian Police major general, Samah abd al-Rahman al-Liqaani.
I would caution any potential US-based customers that mail parcel service from Egypt to the US has slowed down dramatically since November. Parcels which used to take 2-3 weeks to arrive now are taking more than two months. Hopefully that doesn’t deter anyone from this promising book.
