A rare larger pamphlet with instructions for navigating the­ Suez Canal in English and French language was published in Port Said. The last pages with colour details showcase maritime signal flags.

As several pamphlets on navigating the Suez Canal, printed from its opening in 1869, appear in the libraries, most of them were printed in Paris.

Port Said imprints, such as ours, are rare. The first article states, that they were handed out at the Canal itself:

Before entering the Canal captains of the ships shall bind themselves on receiving a copy of the present regulations to abide by and conform themselves in all points to all required arrangements made in view of the execution of these regulations.

We could not find any other institutional examples of the pamphlet.
