Abstract:Revised version of a paper given at the African Studies Association meeting in New Orleans, November 1985. A review in roughly chronological order is presented of some of the German sources available for West Africa before 1884. Five appendices provide lists of German books published before 1884 with primary material on West Africa, translations into German (1770-1870), secondary works on West Africa, non-missionary archival sources (19th century), and periodicals with material on West Africa.
