Wageningen UR Library has commissioned a special gift set of cards of the Tulip Book, one of the library’s highlights. The cards can be purchased at the WUR shop.

One of the library’s highlights is the Tulip Book of Haarlem florist P. Cos with prices from 1637. This nursery catalogue of tulip watercolours was published at the peak of the Dutch Tulip Mania. The Library has commissioned a special gift edition of 10 cards with envelopes. The set can be ordered online from Bekking & Blitz. It can also be purchased at the WUR shop in the Forum building for the discounted price of € 7.50.

Real fans of the book can also order a miniature version of the Tulip Book. The book comes in two sizes. Each is bound in leather and hand made by Tine Krijnen. The miniature versions can be viewed by appointment at the Special Collections. P. Cos’ Tulip Book is digitally available at Wageningen UR Image Collections.
