Unusual novelty book of interest to both movable book and Buzza collectors.

Collectors Corner:

George Buzza founded the Buzza Company in 1907. The company started out selling college posters and posters for retail stores. When the market for these went away, he decided to manufacture greeting cards. In 1928 Buzza merged with the Charles S. Clark Company of New York City. In 1929 Buzza sold his interest in the company and retired to California. Buzza was considered to be a pioneer in his use of color. He produced few movable books. But other titles include:
