There is something timeless about this science-fiction based, allegorical fairytale. Beloved by children and treasured by adults, this 1943 heirloom first edition of Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince is a true, irreplaceable collectible.
Leather bound with reinforced binding.
An aviator, downed in the desert and facing long odds of survival, encounters a strange young person, neither man nor really boy, who, it emerges over time, has travelled from his solitary home on a distant asteroid, where he lives alone with a single rose. The rose has made him so miserable that, in torment, he has taken advantage of a flock of birds to convey him to other planets. He is instructed by a wise if cautious fox, and by a sinister angel of death, the snake.
