The Black Tulip

The Black Tulip
by Alexandre Dumas

Publisher: Project Gutenberg 1997
ISBN/ASIN: 1587156865

Description:
The story begins with a historical event -- the 1672 lynching of the Dutch Grand Pensionary Johan de Witt and his brother Cornelis, by a wild mob of their own countrymen -- considered by many as one of the most painful episodes in Dutch history, described by Dumas with a dramatic intensity. The main plot line, involving fictional characters, takes place in the following eighteen months; only gradually does the reader understand its connection with the killing of the de Witt brothers.
