Muslim man of Bosnia.
PLATE XXI. contained the portrait, and exhibited the costume, of an inhabitant of Albania. The present plate illustrates the character of an inhabitant of Bosnia, a part of the Turkish empire, as far to the westward, and about three degrees to the north of Albania. And although these two provinces, or kingdoms, may be considered by no means as remote from each other, the national character and costume appear essentially different.
