Fine in a near fine original dust Jacket. First Edition, First Printing. Overall, an outstanding copy. The original dust jacket is vibrant in color without the ubiquitous fading to the spine seen on almost every copy. This true First State dust jacket with publisher's "386 Fourth avenue address printed on the front flap" is near fine but for a tear on the tail of the spine. Bound in the publisher's Salmon color cloth and seldom seen in this amazing shape. The pages are exceptionally clean with no writing, marks or bookplates in the book. A spectacular copy Fully illustrated with reproductions of the color drawings by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Overall, an excellent collector's copy of this enduring classic!
