Here is "The Little Prince", an nrf Gallimard book, written and illustrated by Antoine de Saint Exupery from December 1st 1957 (original publication year is 1943 by Reynal & Hitchcock, Inc. - and it says in this copy in English that the copyright of the text and illustration is by Librarie Gallimard 1946.) This is written in French!

>>>On the back few pages there is more about the edition and printing year (see photos); I will translate here:

"Ten thousand numbered copies between 45,051 and 55,050 were released after the original by Paul Bonet.
Copy 45,985"


"All printings from the Paul Dupont presses in Paris were finished on December 1st 1957. Edition #: 6022
Impression #: 6641
Legal Deposit: 1947
Printed in France"

This hard cover book is 6 1/2 x 8 3/4" and is in good used condition with cover wear and some tea-colored staining on very few interior pages (see photos.) This book would have also had a dust jacket that is not present here.

This book contains beautiful color illustrations!
