Item Description: Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1943. Softcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. First softcover edition. Color illustrated stiff wrappers. 92 pp. Illustrations in color and black and white by the author. Text in French. First state with publisher's name and author's name wrapping slightly around the spine strip onto the covers; so-called "flying crow" (actually a printing fault) present in illustration on p. 63. The extremely scarce first softcover edition of this, one of the most famous and best loved of all 20th century books. Though not always as pricey, the first softcover edition is far scarcer than the hardcover edition; both were printed in New York, both in the original French and the English translation due to the Second World War (the first French-published edition would not appear until 1946). The wives of Saint Exupery's publishers Eugene Reynal and Curtice Hitchcock set the author and his wife up in an apartment in New York in the early 1940s and it was Elizabeth Reynal who, upon seeing Saint Exupery's doodles and sketches of the "Little Prince", urged him to assemble them into book form with text. He produced the watercolors and text in the summer and fall of 1942 and Reyal & Hitchcock published it in 1943 (NY Times, Jan. 23, 2014). These original drawings were exhibited at the Morgan Library in winter, 2014. Condition: tight, internally clean and bright with even toning to the covers, small scuff to the upper portion of the planet on which the Little Prince stands and again to the bottom front left corner; light corner crease lower front right. Soiling a bit heavier about the very edges. The rear wrap has spot staining along the left hand side that extends to the edge of the rear blank and less so to the final page of text. An image may be viewed on our web site. Bookseller Inventory # E13859

Item Description: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Very nice copy in French of this beloved child's classic. The first edition with a limitation of 260 and signed by the author.The dust jacket has a couple of small tears on top edge and top of spine has a small chip also the price has been clipped. The book is tight and clean. There was a newspaper article from the New York Times dated 4-6-43 which had been laid in the back of the book and it left a discolorization on back end paper and inside back cover. Besides this the book is bright and attractive as is the dust jacket. Seems to be a disagreement of which came first - this limited French edition or the English version depending on which you have. Either way a very rare and desirable book. Photos available on request. Signed by De Saint-Exupery. Bookseller Inventory # 006549

Item Description: Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1943. Cloth. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Illustrated by author (illustrator). First Limited Edition; First. The rarest (and the only true first) edition of the Prince. Number 119 of a scant war-time limited edition of only 260 copies printed in America from the author's original French manuscript. This, the 1943 American French language edition, is the only edition taken from the original French manuscripts (both holographic & typewritten); the only editio princeps and inescapably the only first edition. The French language edition also avoids the many mistranslations in the English language translation of Katherine Woods (also published by Reynal in 1943 in an edition of 525). The French language edition is also the more limited by the publisher (only 10 copies hors commerce; 250 numbered and signed copies). Even if the French & English language editions weren't printed simultaneously the French language edition is (and was most certainly intended by its author to be) the only first edition. Katherine Woods' bewilderingly inaccurate (but monolinguals' delight) translation into English was dictated by the publisher and certainly unread by the author (who had a distain for English and who signed the limitation sheets before they were tipped in). One might (though Saint-Exupery certainly wouldn't) excuse Woods' bowdlerized translation of the original manuscript (e.g., rendering of "tippler" for what should have been translated as "drunkard," and substitution of "charming" for what should have rendered as "ravishing"), but not the grossly inaccurate translation of the author's French "ami" for the English "sheep": "Il était une fois un petit prince qui ___ avait besoin d'un ami" ("Once upon a time there was a little prince who ___had need of a friend") into "Once upon a time there was a little prince who ___had need of a sheep." Consider as well the mysterious (though less egregious) translation of "hanneton" (a beetle) as a "giddy goose" falling on the papers of the Businessman and her description of baobab trees as "large as castles" whereas the original French is (& is purposefully intended to be) "grands comme des églises." Chip to head of darkened spine jacket (see image). Other than minor archival strengthening of jacket, no ownership marks, no paper burns, no inserts, no labels, no restorations, no sophistications, no repairs, no additions, no alterations. Publisher's faded "119" limitation penned to jacket spine. Description copyright 2015, Virginia Book Shop, Inc.; Octavo; 93 pages; Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 1454
