Tulip: The Story of a Flower That Has Made Men Mad
Anna Pavord (au). This marvelous book tells the true story of a flower that has made men mad. Greed, desire, anguish, devotion have all played their part in the development of the tulip from a wild flower of the Asian steppes to the worldwide phenomenon today. No other flower has ever carried so much cultural baggage; it charts political upheavals, illuminates social behavior, mirrors economic booms & busts, plots the ebb & flow of religious persecution. Roaming through Asia, India, Russia & the Ottoman Empire, the book tells how the tulip arrived from Turkey & took the whole of Western Europe by storm. Sumptuously illustrated from a wide range of sources, it also features descriptions of 80 wild-species tulips & several hundred garden varieties.
