Israeli Army philatelic booklet, 1969. A philatelic / public relations booklet issued by (and stamped) by the "Postal Service of the IDF Command on the West Bank", called 'Two Open Bridges'. The 10-page booklet opens with an explanation of the philatelic issues, documents and their usage which existed briefly between 1967 and 1969 for transit between Jordan and Israel. With reproductions of Visitor Visa documents in the background, the booklet goes on to describe the landscape of the Jordan Valley and offer optimistic views of how cross-border cooperation between Israel and Jordan can serve both nations as well as the Palestinians. The booklet is franked with a twin-tabbed Bale 208/Scott 194 (from 1961-66) on the front and two Bale 446/Scott 405 (from 1970) on the reverse, both sets with IDF military cancellations from Allenby Bridge. In near-mint condition - and unusual.
