Item Description: New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1943, 1943. Quarto. Original pale brown cloth, titles and pictorial design to spine and front board in dark red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a terracotta full morocco solander box, lettering to sine in black and a pictorial block to the front board of The Little Prince in black. Dust jacket chipped and with one short tear, early typed transcript tipped to rear pastedown. Illustrated throughout by the author. First edition in English, a unique presentation copy with double inscription and an original drawing. On the half-title, in ink and watercolour, the author has added a half-page drawing depicting the Little Prince, his scarf flying in the wind, standing in a barren landscape labelled "Terre", the sky with stars and moon above. In a speech bubble, the Prince remarks "Il faut être absolument fou pour avoir choisi cette planète-là! Elle n'est sympathique que la nuit, quand les habitants dorment." ("You'd have to be completely crazy to have chosen this planet. It is only pleasant at night when the inhabitants are asleep."). Beneath, Sainte-Exupéry has added another lengthy inscription: "Le Petit Prince avait tort. Il y a sur la terre des habitants dont la droiture, la gentilesse, la générosité de coeur consolent de l'avarice et de l'egoïsme des autres. Par example Dorothy Barclay Avec mon plus amical souvenir Antoine de Saint-Exupéry" ("The Little Prince was wrong. There are on earth some inhabitants whose straightforwardness, sweetness, and generosity of heart make up for the avarice and egotism of the others. For example, Dorothy Barclay With fondest remembrance Antoine de Saint-Exupéry"). "And what do you do with five-hundred millions of stars?" In Chapter 13 of the book, Saint-Exupéry's madly acquisitive businessman has counted as many as 500 million stars before he is interrupted by the Little Prince. But how many stars can be seen from the Earth? The question was posed by Saint-Exupéry to a friend, the New York Times reporter Helen Lazeroff, who passed it on to a young assistant, Dorothy Barclay. She in turn telephoned the Hayden Planetarium. In gratitude for her efforts, Saint-Exupéry gave her this very personal gift: one of the very few copies of The Little Prince with a presentation inscription, and the only copy to carry an original drawing of the Little Prince. Inscribed copies are very rare. The manuscript having been composed in Asharoken, New York, Saint-Exupéry's classic was published in both English and French versions in April 1943, just as the author was preparing to leave New York to serve as a pilot in the Free French Air Force, based in North Africa and later, Corsica. Tragically, he never returned from a reconnaissance mission over the Mediterranean, on 31 July 1944. Bookseller Inventory # 93483

An important sociopolitical text (notes for "Terre des Hommes", presumably for an article), in which Saint-Exupéry examines different ways of perceiving civilization: "Ah!

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

Item Description: Reynal & Hitchcock (1943), New York, 1943. Hardcover. Antoine de Saint-Exupery (illustrator). First Edition. This is copy #103 of 525 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 special issue of one of the most beloved books of the twentieth century is, consequently, one of the most desired limited editions and does not come often upon the marketplace. 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. This copy is clean and bright with virtually no wear and is rather uncommon as such. About Fine in a Good at best dustwrapper lacking much of the spine. Bookseller Inventory # 013802

Item Description: Saint-Exupery has drawn four male figures, one of which bears a strong resemblance to this preliminary sketches for The Little Prince, on the blank back cover of the Sunday, July 30, 1939 dinner menu of the celebrated French Line ship Normandie. Approximately 10 x 14"; aside from a narrow tape stain along the side edges of the front cover, in excellent condition. This particular crossing remains famous for its record time of 3 days, 23 hours, and 2 minutes. During the passage, the ship was buzzed by Saint-Exupery's co-pilot and friend Guillaumet (with whom he had flown on a trans-Atlantic round-trip earlier in the month). The author traveled to New York at the request of his American publisher, Reynal & Hitchcock, to promote the American edition of Terres des Hommes (Wind, Sand and Stars), but imminent war in Europe cut his trip short, returning to France only a week before the declaration of war.

Item Description: S. l., vers 1942., 1942. 1 p. (22 lignes). In-4. Peut être un brouillon pour sa "Citadelle" composée en partie aux Etats-Unis en 1941/1943, peu avant son retour en Europe et son dernier survol de la Méditerranée. Non corrigé. - "Oh, mon Dieu, moi je veux vous aider et reparer les mœurs du jour et redresser l'autel. Et retablir le sens du livre. On vous permettra, vous les hommes, sur une page blanche de l'ecrir. L'amour? Je ne crois plus à cet amour immediat. L'amour n'est point de s'attendrir sur cette [.] qui [.] mais sur ce dont elle est depositaire et qui seul rayonne. Il ne s'agit pas de ranger ceux qui ont dispersé leurs aromates mais de refaire ces vase sacrés capable de capter la conscience et de construire un livre avec les mots. Nous avons besoin que tous collaborent. La [.] n'est point l'œuvre repandue par quelque vers, alimentant les justes - mais la [.] de vreation - et ici je resoud cette contradiction interne qui nous fait sentir sans enthousiasme pour Descartes - La [.] pour nous - tantot pour les sauvages des iles qui dansent leurs danses et chantent leurs chants loin de nos [.] [.] ouvriers. Et nous balancons entre ces deux pôles sans idée claire pour saisir la réalité qui disperse nos aspirations. La même chose cependant. Createur - Je t'ai donc surpris là dans ton obscur travail fourmillier qui ruche qui fabrique ton miel sans le savoir. Et cette [.] qui souffre ne na sais pas pourquoi elle souffre sinon qu'elle souffre. C'est l'humble image d'une mauvaise aventure, d'une famille dispersée et d'un enfant malade - quand il s'agit de quelque chose [.] comee une crise religieuse et d'une ascension retardée. Je ne peux souffrir ces notions prises non à la base. Les polemiques. Un roi c'est un sang royal jusqu'au dernier". Bookseller Inventory # 31867

Item Description: Editions de la Maison Française, New-York, 1942. Couverture rigide. Book Condition: Satisfaisant. in-4. in-4, 253 pp., broché, couverture imprimée dans un emboîtage en demi maroquin brun à coin, Édition originale, tirage limité à 526 exemplaires, un des 450 imprimés sur papier Corsican (n°61). Bel exemplaire enrichi d'un amical envoi signé de l'auteur à Madame Ping Lawrence, femme de Laudy Lawrence, représentant de la société de production MGM en Europe et ami de l’auteur : « Pour Madame L. Lawrence, avec l’espoir que, malgré son refus de tels livres, elle voudra bien faire, une fois, une exception, et lire ces quelques souvenirs d’un pilote de guerre, avec mon très amical souvenir». Cet envoi a vraisemblablement été rédigé lors d’une soirée mondaine chez Madame Anne Morgan, présidente du Comité de coordination des sociétés d’entraide françaises, où Saint-Exupéry fut convié pour présenter son livre. Après son discours, il fut happé par la foule au milieu de laquelle il reconnut un visage familier, celui de Ping Lawrence, qu’il entraîna dans une autre pièce pour pouvoir lui parler à l’abri des regards. Dans l'exemplaire, des articles du New York Times à propos de l'ouvrage, datés de 1943. Bookseller Inventory # 63728

Item Description: 1942. Signed. SAINT-EXUPERY, Antoine de.Pilote de Guerre [printer’s proofs].[Paris: Gallimard, 1942].Early printer’s proofs of the first French edition of Pilote de Guerre, Saint-Exupéry’s account of his role in the French Air Force during the 1940 Battle of France. This set of proofs presented by Saint-Exupéry to his good friend Michel Bertin, inscribed and signed by him in blue pen on the first sheet: "A Michel Bertin, a jeu d’epreuves d’un petit livre sur le France avec tout ma trés profonde amitié. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry." ["A set of proofs of a small book about France with all my very deep friendship."].Originally published in English as Flight to Arras in February 1942, Pilote de Guerre "is a deeply personal book Conceived as a volume on the fall of France, Flight to Arras was a war book by the time it was published. It won raves on both counts. It was universally thought to dwarf all other accounts of the French defeat; writing in the Atlantic Edward Weeks declared, This narrative and Churchill’s speeches stand as the best answer the democracies have yet found to Mein Kampf" (Schiff, 363). When it was published in French in November 1942, the censors of Vichy France quickly banned the work and seized and destroyed 1726 copies of the first edition, leaving only 402 copies in existence. Pilote de Guerre remained interdicted until the end of the war. Books signed by Saint-Exupéry are uncommon as he died in 1944.Expected embrowning and brittleness to fragile sheets, with expert restoration to edges and first few and last folds. A very good and very rare inscribed copy of the early printer’s proofs. Bookseller Inventory # 86859

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

C’est en 1936 que Saint-Ex part pour l’Espagne suivre les événements de la guerre civile ; de tous ces voyages, il rapporte une somme de souvenirs, d’émotions et d’expériences qui aboutiront à l’écriture de Terre des hommes. 2. Ensemble d’articles de presse, montés sur 11 grands feuillets bleu (40 x 31 cm), avec quelques annotations de la main de Saint-Ex (dates et titres de journaux), 4 – 6 janvier 1936. Pliures, quelques défauts. Sur sa disparition dans le Sahara libyen et son sauvetage inespéré, après trois jours et quatre nuits d’errance sans eau ni vivres. Ensemble d’articles parus dans Paris-Soir (Tonio, par Blaise Cendrars), Excelsior, Le Matin, Le Journal, Le Figaro, Le Figaro Littéraire, Paris-Sport + un autre de Léon-Paul Fargue dans Le Figaro du 26 janvier. Cet épisode retentissant est l’élément central de Terre des Hommes. Il figure dans le chapitre VII. 3. Tapuscrit de 17 pages in-4 agrafées, Le Pilote et les puissances naturelles. C’est le récit de la lutte que Saint-Exupéry eut à mener contre les éléments déchaînés, au cours d'un vol de reconnaissance au-dessus de la Patagonie. Ce texte devait initialement être intégré à Terre des Hommes. Saint-Ex précise en haut du tapuscrit : « Titre pour le livre : LES ELEMENTS. Titre pour la revue : LE PILOTE ET LES PUISSANCES NATURELLES ». Il sera en effet publié sous ce dernier titre dans Marianne du 16 août 1939 (voir Pléiade I, pages 287 et suivantes), puis réédité par Gallimard en 1956, dans le recueil Un sens à la vie. « Conrad, s’il raconte un typhon, décrit à peine les vagues monumentales, les ténèbres et l’ouragan [ ] ». 4.

Item Description: New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1942, 1942. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board gilt, pictorial endpapers, top edge dyed blue. With the dust jacket. Spine slightly rolled. An excellent copy in the price-clipped and rubbed jacket with a few chips and closed tears and a small mark at the head of the faded spine panel. 12 plates by Bernard Lamotte. First English language edition, first printing. Signed by the author on the half-title, and on the same page inscribed by the illustrator Bernard Lamotte, "a le Huédé, avec toute mon amitié, Bernard Lamotte". The recipient was Hervé le Huédé, captain of the French luxury liner Normandy, which made its final voyage across the Atlantic in August 1939 and was stranded in New York at the outbreak of war in September. Le Huédé was promoted when the original captain Stephen Payen returned to France, and he served aboard the docked ship until it was requisitioned by the US government in 1941. Saint-Exupery and Lamotte met in art school in France, and during the early 1940s spent a great deal of time together at Lamotte's New York studio, Le Bocal (The Fishbowl). It was here that Saint-Exupery did much of his work for The Little Prince while Lamotte completed the illustrations for this volume. Le Bocal was the social hub for a large group of French expatriates, artists, and celebrities, and it is likely that the stranded captain spent time there. Bookseller Inventory # 83817

Item Description: Reynal & Hitchcock, New York City, 1943. colour illustrations (illustrator). First edition. Larger 8vo, pp. 91. "The Little Prince" is a novella and the most famous work of the French aristocrat, writer, poet and pioneering aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944). The novella is both the most-read and most-translated book in the French language and has been translated into more than 250 languages and dialects. Annual sales still top two million copies with past sales totaling over 140 million copies worldwide. It is one of the best-selling books ever published. After the outbreak of the Second World War, Saint-Exupery was exiled to North America. In the midst of personal upheavals and failing health, he produced almost half of the writings for which he would be remembered, including this tender tale of loneliness, friendship, love, and loss, in the form of a young alien prince fallen to Earth. The first printing was in 1943 by Reynal & Hitchcock, Inc. whose offices were, at that date, located at 386 Fourth Avenue, New York City, and it preceded the first French edition by two years. The dust jacket should show the price of $2.00 and the rose should appear on page 27 and face left. Later Harcourt printings had the rose facing right and on page 28. The colophon should have five lines, all in italics. The cloth should be salmon in color with red lettering (later printings had black lettering). All of these points exist in our copy. The dust jacket is age-toned, with a few minor scrapes to the front and rear panels. The cloth is exceptionally clean. Overall, a near fine copy in a good plus dust jacket.
