Description
This “History of Bosnia”, which can be defined as a gazavâtnâme, was written by the former judge Ömer Bosnavi and was published by İbrāhīm Müteferriḳa in Istanbul, in 1741. It deals with the war opposing the Ottoman Empire, Russia and the Habsburg Monarchy between 1736 and 1739. Ömer Efendi collected his data from eyewitnesses. Müteferriḳa writes in his introduction that he cross-checked the information with accounts of people who took part in the war.
