Famous for classic adventure novels such as The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers, Alexandre Dumas is one of the most popular French authors of all time. Set in the Netherlands during the seventeenth century, The Black Tulip follows young bourgeoisie Cornelius van Baerle as he attempts to claim the prize set by the city of Haarlem for growing the rare black tulip. On the cusp of victory, Cornelius is instead tossed into prison, where he meets the prison guard’s daughter and begins a relationship that may eventually lead to his rescue.

    " As a child I loved this unreservedly, although I didn't really grasp the political elements of the plot. I had never seen a tulip, and was amazed and little frightened at the idea that so much desire, envy and treachery could develop over a flower. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the adventure and liked the love story too, although Cornelius didn't seem very heroic to me. "

    " An amazing story about something so simple as a black tulip (well not that simple considering there are no black tulips) "
