Goldgar, Anne

Tulipmania. Money, Honor, and Knowledge in the Dutch Golden Age. 2007. 13 col. pls. 69 halftones. 3 tabs. XX, 425 p. gr8vo. Cloth.
Making use of extensive archival research, the author lays waste to the legends concerning the 1630s Netherlands and tulipmania. She reveals that while the 1630s did see a speculative bubble in tulip prices, neither the height of the bubble nor its bursting were anywhere near as dramatic as we tend to think. She shows how Dutch citizens became enchanted by the combination of art and science that made up a tulip bulb, and how experts in tulips appeared in communities of merchants and craftsmen.
