Toelichting (Engels) This unique tulip book with 75 gouaches served as a manuscript nursery catalogue for florist P. Cos at the height of the tulipomania period (1634-1637) in the seventeenth century, the Dutch Golden Age. The sudden occurrence of striped patterns in the plain flower colours drove prices into a speculation trade that collapsed in 1637. The most expensive one in this tulip book, the Viceroy, was sold for f 4200. The salary of a craftsman being f 200 a year. What makes this tulip book extraordinary is that the tulip names are part of the illustration in contemporary paint, sometimes in the form of a riddle. The weight of the bulbs (in Aasen, 1 aas = 0,048 gr.), and their prices in florins (f) for which they were sold was added later on in the illustration, as was the title page. In 1941 research at Wageningen University discovered which virus caused the tulip colours to break into striped patterns.
