National Geographic: Which issues influenced Hergé and/ or acted as reference material?

As stated in a previous post, I have a The National Geographic magazine that inspired Hergé for the Prisoners of the Sun adventure.

Is there a list of all National Geographic magazines that inspired Hergé?

I would be interested at starting a collection based around the influence of the drawings and stories.

Hergé took some inspiration for Tintin in the Congo from an issue of National Geographic, dated October 1922.
