This appears to have only been available as a single set of 40 slides, rather than the more common Primus practice of dividing longer sets into 'chapters' of 8 slides.

The slide titles match a selection of those in the Newton set The life and work of David Livingstone (Lucerna 3006004). This could indicate that the Primus set was made from the Newton set, or equally that both were made from the same original image source, probably an illustrated book.
