Busch, Wilhelm: Schnurrdiburr / Buzz a Buzz (De, En, colorIllus). v1. 07 May 2021

Schnurrdiburr, oder, Die Bienen
Written and illustrated by Wilhelm Busch (1832–1908)

Buzz a Buzz, or, The Bees
English translation 1 by Hezekiah Watson (no data found)
English translation 2 By William C. Cotton (1813–1879)


This is a story in comical pictures and rhyme, in which the bees are humanized. The human characters find themselves in many strange and silly, and sometimes scary, situations.

I’ll sing of Johnny Dull: his pig,
Made by his bees exceeding big;
And of his daughter fair Christine,
Of her lover Dicky Dean,
And of his nephew rogue Eugene—
Of honey-robbers I will tell,
And bears, and bull-frogs, ghosts as well.


Wilhelm Busch spent part of his childhood with his uncle, George Klein, who was a clergyman and an experienced beekeeper, and incorporated numerous natural history facts in this story.

Max and Moritz/Maurice is available here in the library

======
Heinrich Christian Wilhelm Busch (15 April 1832 – 9 January 1908) was a German humorist, poet, illustrator, and painter. He published comic illustrated cautionary tales from 1859, achieving his most notable works in the 1870s. He is perhaps best remembered for Max und Moritz (1865). That book details seven pranks by two very naughty boys, who have become iconic characters in German-speaking countries, and who were the inspiration for the long-running American comic strip The Katzenjammer Kids.

======
The original German book, text and illustrations by Wilhelm Busch (1832–1908), was first published in 1872. English translation by William Cotton (1813–1879) first published 1872. English translation by Hezekiah Watkins first published 1873.

This book is assumed to be in the public domain worldwide.
