Biographical / Historical
Vere Louis Bosazza, D.Sc., F.R.G.S., F.G.S., was a student of African exploration, particularly its maritime aspects, who wrote on David Livingstone and his colleagues. He was a Member of the Royal Institute of Navigation, and his practical knowledge of seamanship gave him a special insight into the navigational aspects of Livingstone's travels. He published little, but produced a good deal of material in typescript, although his typing was erratic and his scripts have many manuscript additions.
