Book Description Yale. 1 Cloth(s), 2013. hard. Book Condition: New. Economic crashes like the one in 2008 are nothing new in capitalist societies. The world's first global stock bubble burst in 1720, destroying the dreams and fortunes of speculators in London, Paris, and Amsterdam virtually overnight. Their folly and misfortune inspired an extraordinary Dutch publication of satirical prints, plays, poetry, commentary, and financial reports entitled Het groote Tafereel de Dwaasheid, or The Great Mirror of Folly. Adopting the same title, this book about the book offers a wide-ranging collection of 16 essays that uncovers the meaning and influence of the Tafereel and the profound, lasting, and multifaceted impact of the crash of 1720 on European cultures and financial markets. Along with 171 illustrations and detail views, it features a section of 68 plates reproducing the engravings of the original edition."As global as anything could be in its time, the financial collapse of 1720 elicits a multidisciplinary approach from authors magnificently skilled in art, economic, social, and book histories. Would that our own economic crises will one day produce erudition of this quality, in a volume that pleases both the mind and the eye."óMargaret C. Jacob "Will we ever grasp that a dynamic society sometimes flops? Judging from this ravishing display of financial folly from three centuries ago, and the illuminating modern commentary, it doesn't look like it."óDeirdre N. McCloskey 346.
