Here is a list of catalog numbers for all Ethiopian stamps.  I have included Payne’s catalog numbers for all issues before 1936, plus Michel, Scott, Stanley Gibbons and Yvert et Tellier for all issues. The sets are sectioned according to my stamp albums. You can click on an album name to go to that album:

Since I don’t have all the catalogs myself there are some errors and missing numbers. Please send me an email with corrections if you know the correct numbers.

Searches: You can use standard PC/Mac functionality to search in this catalog (Ctrl+F=Find).
Press the Ctrl+F keys and at the same time, and the search box appears. 
Type for example ‘bird’ in the search box, and all words containing bird will be highlighted if it exists in the text.
In Windows you can click on the Next/Previous buttons in the search bar to go to next/previous occurrence.
