Everything you ever wanted to know about tulips is here where they came from why there was a mania for them in Holland in the 17th century and later in the Ottoman court and how the bursting of the bubble in tulip prices was handled by the Dutch authourities17th century tulips which are beautifully illustrated in these pages were much beautiful than those we see today Their beauty came from flame like streaks of colour caused by a disease which has now been eradicated At the peak a single bulb could sell for than the cost of 2 grand Amsterdam houses but within weeks of the peak they had almost no value at allThe madness of speculatory booms is clear from this account However I found some of it a little dry perhaps because i found this account to be a little over long in the telling

A small group of overly ambitious and self regulating traders pool together in a cramped room electric with frenetic energy These men begin the process of buying and selling increasingly complicated instruments about which very few of them possess any degree of knowledge Ordinary citizens wowed and fascinated by the astronomical profits being made by these traders begin to deal on their own account Intangible assets become valuable than bricks and mortar and the majority of the population remain absolutely perplexed by what exactly is being tradedThis is not Wall Street This is Haarlem And the trade does not centre on CDOs CFDs and ETFs rather the focus of traders attentions is a small flower indigenous to a mountain range in northern China And this is tulipomaniaIt was a flower only recently introduced to the United Provinces of Northern Europe and its rise had been meteoric Renowned for its beauty and revered for its imperfections the most desired flowers were disease ridden the tulip had first found its way into the gardens of French and German aristocracy in the middle of 1500s Charting its course from there until in 1637 when it caused the biggest financial disaster yet known to humanity is a difficult process tackled with a degree of aplomb by Mike Dash in his short narrative on this intriguing and increasingly relevant phenomenaDash is not given an easy task by his own admission archives lack any great depth of literature on this period of the Dutch Golden Age and contemporaneous accounts are scarce or serve as moral warnings as opposed to candid accounts of this hyper trade And at times this weakness in source material is evident as Dash fills pages with speculation and assumption Based entirely on fact however this book would be a great deal shorter and would not play along with some of the exaggerated claims made about the period between the summer of 1637 and the following SpringDash shows a keenness for history which does not always makes itself amenable to the reader and he is often guilty of acting outside his brief when he heads off on tangents about the Dutch Golden Age specific characters in 17th century Amsterdam and wider commentary on the nation as a whole Whilst it could be construed as scene setting the author sometimes dallies too much in the social history of what is essentially a fiercely economic occurrenceThough what he does well is undermine the common conception that tulipomania was a true supernova which broke the back of the United Provinces and bankrupted the nation Its economic conseuences as severe as they were affected only a minority who had optimistically thought there was a fortune to be made in holding promissory notes pertaining to an asset as unpredictable and volatile as an unplanted bulbThe book s greatest strength is in reinforcing the idea that the crash was caused by the ineptitude of the tulip trade s dealers As opposed to the stockbrokers who plied their trade in a sanctioned and regulated bours the tulip trade was handled in smoky ale filled taverns by drunkards and laymen with no training and little knowledge of either horticulture or economics It was a market riddled with opportunists and tainted by fraud there was no assurance that the bulb being bought belonged to the seller or was of a particularly cherished variety of tulip and the entire market was built upon the frailties inherent in dealing on something which had at the end of the day no tangible realisable valueFinding a book on this fascinating period of history is a tough task in itself and this is unsurprising as there is a clear lack of primary contemporary literature detailing precisely what happened and when to precipitate such a devastating crash Mike Dash has accomplished the most complete modern history of the event however and his books stands head and shoulders above the rest of the academic texts which document those turbulent few yearsTulipomania is a uick read at fewer than 300 pages and it is easily digestible for those with and those without a firm grasp on the economics of market trading More keenly it serves as a timely reminder of the dangers of speculation and margin trading
