This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of Africa that you might want to check out.

Small-scale map of much of Central Africa that appears to use colored lines to illustrate the paths taken by various 19th century European explorers -- I'm far from an expert, but I recognized a few: Henry Morton Stanley ("Dr. Livingstone, I presume?), and of course Dr. Livingstone himself, Wilhelm Junker, Georg Schweinfurth, Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, Eduard Robert Flegel, Hermenegildo Capelo, Joseph Thomson, and James Frederic Elton. Several on there that I couldn't recognize, as well.

Any native German speakers wanna search through this for notable... things?
