Dash, Mike

SUMMARY

"Mike Dash's TULIPOMANIA...is a pocket-sized book in which the story grows bigger as it unfolds. Dash's main field of enquiry, also covered by Pavord, is the great Dutch tulip mania of 1633-7 when a people noted for being 'dour, drab, sternly moralistic and above all extraordinarily canny in matters of finance' abandoned themselves to a passion for mere flowers. The rarest, most sought-after bulbs changed hands for astronomical prices twice the price of a house for a single bulb. Ironically, the broken colours that seared their petals like flames were caused by a virus which weakened the bulbs and contributed to their rarity."Dash, Mike is the author of 'Tulipomania The Story of the World's Most Coveted Flower and the Extraordinary Passions It Aroused', published 2001 under ISBN 9780609807651 and ISBN 060980765X.
