The TulipBook - 1999
This gift book tells the story of the tulip, from its origins as a wild flower of the Asian steppes to the world-wide phenomena it is today. The author traces the cultural significance of the tulip: how it charts political upheavals, illuminates social behaviour, mirrors economic booms and busts, and plots the ebb and flow of religious persecution.
