Summary, etc.:
Imagine a craze as potent as the wildest stock market boom, or a commodity as precious as gold. In 17th century Amsterdam, this was Tulipmania. The tulip appeared in Europe in the mid-16th century as a delicately formed and vividly-colored flower, viewed as exotic and alluring. Tulipmania was a rapid rise in the price of tulip bulbs, notably between 1634 and 1637.
