Author Of The Little Prince
|Publisher||reynal & hitchcock|
Reynal & Hitchcock, 1939. FIRST EDITION, first printing. Very good condition throughout, tightly bound. Original unclipped dust jacket, chips and closed tears to edge but overall a very nice jacket, now preserved in mylar cover. "The American Booksellers Association voted this book the best nonfiction title of 1939, and it ranks as one of the greatest aviation adventures ever published." The author, ironically perhaps, died tragically in a plane crash. This title precedes his classic Little Prince. 306 pages.
