Book 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

Book 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

Book Description: Reynal & Hitchcock (1943), New York, 1943. Hardcover. Antoine de Saint-Exupery (illustrator). First Edition. This is copy #163 of only 260 numbered copies SIGNED by the author on the tipped-in limitation page. The American edition appeared before the French or English editions, and this is the ONLY way to obtain a signed edition of this book as the author was assigned to fly with the French Free Air Force shortly before publication and went missing about a year later while on a mission. This edition with the text in French had a limitation of less than half of the 525 copies of the English language edition. This special issue of one of the most beloved books of the twentieth century is, consequently, one of the most desired limited editions and is scarce in the marketplace. The dustwrapper on this copy is the original with the matching number in ink on the spine. THE LITTLE PRINCE is both the most-read and most-translated book in the French language and was voted the best book of the 20th century in France. Bookplates neatly removed from the front free endpaper and rear pastedown and one ink stamp professionally erased on the bottom of the title page. Covers and text are clean and bright. Near Fine in a price-clipped, close to Fine dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 016790

Book Description: Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1943. Hardcover. 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. The first edition avoids the many mistranslations and loss of nuance in the English language translation of Katherine Woods (also published by Reynal in 1943 in an edition of 525). The 1943 American French language edition is the only edition taken from the original French manuscripts (both holographic & typewritten) and so can be the only editio princeps and inescapably the only first edition. 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 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 her bowdlerized translation of the original French 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). This is a clean unread copy free of ownership marks, paper burns, inserts, labels, restorations, sophistications, additions or alterations.
