Tags:  0186.ivangundulić:osmani-iiioldandrarebooks-croatia 0047.

First edition. Extremely rare in a set of three books.

The Ottoman consists of 20 chants (14th and 15th missing) sung by octal quatrains with the rhyme abab.

It contains a total of 10428 verses.

In the work, with certain deviations from the theme, the events related to the life, rule and death of the Turkish Sultan Osman II are sung. Gundulić's manuscript was used by Nikola Ohmučević, who transcribed it, and his transcript is today the oldest known manuscript of Osman, because Gundulić's autograph has not been preserved.

The first edition of Osman was printed in Dubrovnik in 1826 with a supplement by Pijerko Sorkočević.

Osman belonged to the Dubrovnik canon Antun Dražić (he has his ex libris). He wrote a book in 1822: Ricordi personali su Ragusa del 1822. (Dalle memorie inedite.)

In 1 volume in the second chant there is an error in the pagination. After page 23 comes page 34, but the pages are not missing.

1 volume complete.

2 tom is missing pages 33-40.

3 volumes complete
