The Michel catalog (MICHEL-Briefmarken-Katalog) is the largest and best-known stamp catalog in the world. First published in 1910, it has become an important reference work for philately, with information not available in the English-language Scott catalog.
The catalog started out as a price list for the dealer Hugo Michel of Apolda. By 1920 it was split into two volumes, for "Europe" and "overseas", and eventually grew to a present-day size of about a dozen volumes covering the entire world, with additional specialized volumes bringing the total to some forty catalogs. It extensively covers specialized Germany collecting including the complex WW2 era stamps of Germany, occupied territories, and provisional stamps.
