The Black Tulip By Alexandre Dumas

The Black Tulip

Alexandre Dumas


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 254 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1850.

Description

The Black Tulip begins with an event that actually happened - the lynching of Johan de Witt (who was the equivalent of the Dutch Prime Minister) and his brother Cornelis in 1672. The rest of the plot takes place in the next 18 months and follows Cornelius van Baerle, a horticulturist who enters a competition to grow a black tulip, but is suddenly thrown in prison. There he meets Rosa, the prison guard's daughter.
