      Sheet from a Tulip Book, Jacob Marrel, c. parchment (animal material), h mm × w mm More details. Flowers were costly, and tulips the costliest of all. Tulip bulbs were avidly collected in the 17th century and large sums changed hands for unusual specimens. The tulip book’s exact function is not known.   THE TULIP is not a gardening book. It is the story of a flower that has made men mad. Greed, desire, anguish and devotion have all played their part in the development of the tulip into the world-wide phenomenon it is today. No other flower has ever carried so much cultural baggage; it charts political upheavals, illuminates social behaviour, mirrors economic /5(3).

      This is an important book that destroys the myth of "The tulip bubble." It's think and deep and very detailed (I couldn't keep all the Dutch names separate), and it has to be, so you understand the context. There was no Tulip bubble, but the truth is far more interesting than that! The story is deftly told by a skilled researcher and writer/5(7).   “The rage among the Dutch to possess them was so great that the ordinary industry of the country was neglected, and the population, even to its lowest dregs, embarked in the tulip trade Author: Lorraine Boissoneault.

      The Black Tulip is a historical novel written by Alexandre Dumas, père. 7 External links. The story begins with a historical event—the lynching of the Dutch Grand Pensionary (roughly equivalent to a modern Prime Minister) Johan de Witt and his brother Cornelis, by a wild mob of their own countrymen—considered by many as one of the Author: Alexandre Dumas. The book is oversized and the pictures feel large. If Id had access to this book as a child, I almost didn’t give this 5 stars because I’d have preferred a straight non-fiction account or a fictional account that didn’t pose as truth, and the only non-fiction is the text in the inside front cover and the author’s note at the end/5.

But tulips in Holland in the s are more precious than gold or Free shipping over $ A mercantile craze for tulips, known as "Tulipomania," arose in Holland in the early seventeenth century.

Native to Turkey, the tulip was introduced into Europe in and quickly became popular in Holland. The insatiable demand for the beautiful, rare bulbs reached its height inwhen prices soared and flower merchants enjoyed great wealth.

The Great Tulip Book ; The Great Tulip Book Septem – July 8. Tulip Mania. Written By: Tulip Mania, also called Tulip Craze, Dutch Tulpenwindhandel, a speculative frenzy in 17th-century Holland over the sale of tulip bulbs.

Tulips were introduced into Europe from Turkey shortly afterand the delicately formed, vividly coloured flowers became a popular if costly item. The speculations about the tulip is an intriguing research and read.

The lure of profit enticed novice florists to enter the tulip trade with minimal investment and small parcels of land, harkening back to the days of farmers taking up. A single Viceroy tulip bulb would sell for florins a value roughly equivalent to $1, in current American dollars, while a rarer Semper Augustus bulb could easily go for twice that.

One particularly amusing exchange showed the goods traded for one bulb – the lengthy list includes among other things: a bed, a complete suit of clothes.
