— Tulipomania

These watercolour illustrations were produced in the 17th century, during the time of ‘tulipmania’, for The Great Tulip Book.

 

This album was used by a wealthy Dutch merchant and grower to show his clients the different varieties of tylip bulbs available for purchase… …or speculative investment.
