Caption: Paul Friedrich Johann Moritz Pogge (1838-1884), German explorer of Africa. Pogge studied in Germany, obtaining a doctorate in law. He then travelled to southern Africa as a big game hunter in the mid-1860s. He took part in two expeditions to Central Africa and the Congo Basin. The first expedition (1874 to 1876) was with German naturalist Alexander von Homeyer. The second expedition (1880 to 1884) was with German explorer Hermann Wissmann. Pogge died in Africa from the effects of this second expedition. A commemorative memorial bust was erected in 1885 in Rostock, Germany. This engraving dates from circa 1888.
