Description

Zusammenfassung In 1630s, the Netherlands was gripped by tulipmania: a speculative fever unprecedented in scale and, as history would have it, folly. The author lays waste to the legends, revealing that while the 1630s did see a speculative bubble in tulip prices, neither the height of bubble nor its bursting were anywhere near as dramatic as we tend to think.

Auteur

Anne Goldgar is a reader in early modern history at King's College London. She is the author of Impolite Learning: Conduct and Community in the Republic of Letters, 1680-1750.

Texte du rabat

Throughout this bracing history, Goldgar writes elegantly about everything from intellectual communities to the economics of speculation to the beauty of tulips themselves. Far more than simply dispelling myths, this extensively research history brings the Dutch Golden Age to life.
