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, 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 avoids 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 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 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 less egregious 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 sophistications, no repairs, no additions, no alterations. Publisher's faded "119" limitation penned to jacket spine. Description copyright 2016 by William Chrisant.; Octavo; 93 pages; Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 1454

Notre exemplaire est présenté sous une chemise étui de Julie Nadot reprenant les illustrations de la jaquette pour illustrer les plats. « Les contes de fées c'est comme ça. Un matin on se réveille. On dit : "ce n'était qu'un conte de fées." On sourit de soi. Mais au fond on ne sourit guère. On sait bien que les contes de fées c'est la seule vérité de la vie. » (Saint-Exupéry, Lettre à l'inconnue, mai 1943) Il est communément admis que Saint-Exupéry, reparti au combat avant la parution de la version française du Petit Prince, ne put dédicacer, avant son départ de New-York, que quelques rares exemplaires de la version anglaise. Durant les seize mois qu'il passa en Afrique du Nord, où ses livres étaient interdits, il ne posséda qu'un unique exemplaire qu'il « ne prêt[ait] jamais [.] et fais[ait] lire chez [lui], dans [s]a chambre », même à ses plus proches amis. Et pourtant, deux enfants d'Alger, inconnus jusqu'à lors des biographes de Saint-Exupéry, ont eu l'heur de posséder cet improbable exemplaire dédicacé de ce que Martin Heidegger considèrera comme « l'un des grands livres existentialistes du siècle ». Conte universel s'il en est - Le Petit Prince est l'œuvre la plus traduite après la Bible -, cet hymne au voyage, à l'amitié et à l'enfance fut dès l'origine considéré comme un roman à clefs, offrant, sous couvert d'un récit pour enfants, un regard profond sur l'actualité tragique et révélant chez l'auteur une philosophie plus complexe que ne lui prêtaient alors ses détracteurs. Si l'on ne sait avec exactitude quelle est la genèse de ce personnage - la lecture d'Andersen par l'actrice Annabella, la boîte d'aquarelle offerte par le réalisateur René Clair, une idée de son éditrice Elisabeth Reynal ou simplement la mémoire de son frère disparu - l'écriture du conte lui-même fut très fortement influencée par la guerre, l'exil et les relations difficiles de Saint-Exupéry avec les autorités de la Résistance. Démobilisé en 1940, l'écrivain plébiscité en 1939 pour Terre des hommes, se réfugie à New-York où il écrit et publie en février 1942 Pilote de guerre, relatant, à l'attention de l'opinion publique américaine, le courage des soldats français malgré l'inéluctable défaite. Trop philosémite pour les uns et trop défaitiste pour les autres, ce récit, rapidement interdit en France, lui vaudra l'inimitié des pétainistes mais également des gaullistes qui le contraignent à l'inaction tandis que l'Afrique du Nord reconquise par les Alliés ouvre des perspectives de reprise du combat armé. Malgré une vie sentimentale et sociale intense, c'est dans un sentiment de profonde solitude et d'incompréhension que Saint-Exupéry compose, durant l'année 1942, Le Petit Prince pour ses éditeurs new-yorkais qui viennent de publier Mary Poppins, Eugene Reynal & Curtice Hitchcock. à la fin 1942, Saint-Exupéry accentuera encore cette animosité en diffusant à la radio puis en publiant sa Lettre aux Français appelant à l'unité entre les Français de France et les expatriés contre le nazisme. Son incitation à la réconciliation pour une lutte unie et sans concession contre l'ennemi commun, son refus de juger le choix des hommes oppressés et sa critique implicite des luttes.
