A pilot forced to crash land in the Sahara desert encounters a little prince who is visiting the earth from his own small planet with its three volcanoes and a beautiful flower. Through this meeting, the aviator comes to discover many of life's universal truths which illuminate the human condition with all its foibles, cunning and eccentricities. This wonderful and remarkable book will enchant both children and adults alike. It is a strange and wonderful parable for all ages, championing the beauty and wisdom of childhood which fades when one becomes 'a grown up'. Antoine De Saint-Exupery's book has been translated into over 180 languages and sold over 80 million copies. Its magic is in its charm, its simplicity and its truths which speak to people of many nations and generations.Hide synopsis

Small quarto, original salmon cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The Little Prince has something of Hans Christian Andersen in it, something of Lewis Carroll, and even, it may perhaps be said, a bit of John Bunyan. It is often lyrical… sometimes profound… However it is classified, The Little Prince has entered children's literature, in the manner of quite a few other such hard-to-define works in the preceding centuries" (Pierpont Morgan Library). A year after the book's publication in 1943, Saint-Exupery disappeared over the Mediterranean while flying a reconnaissance mission for his French air squadron, making this signed limited very desirable.

About Fine, lacking the dustwrapper. 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.
I first became interested in reading The Little Prince when I heard that it was James Dean's favorite book. After reading the story, I see why he liked the book so much. An intellectual read for sure with quite a powerful yet simple message. I think everyone who reads this book will take something ...
If I could only read one book to my child...this would be it.
Teach your children The Little Prince's lessons so that they are set for life. This book gives value to children and their pure and curious view of the world. If children gain this wisdom early, I think they will have a better foundation ...
