IN the fifth (May) number of the Geographische Mittheilungen, I publish an article and two maps on “Livingstone's Travels and Discoveries from 1840 to May 1869,” one of the maps being carefully compiled from the original Portuguese publications of the Portuguese journeys since 1798—viz., those of Dr. Fr. José de Lacerda e Almeida, the Pombeiros Joao Baptista and Pedro, Major Monteiro, and others, showing all that is at present known of those regions. Both maps and text keep aloof from theories and speculations as to the connections of rivers and lakes discovered by Livingstone and the Portuguese with the Nile.
