The Little Prince
First edition in English, first printing, number 436 of 500 numbered copies, from a limited edition of 525 copies signed by the author on the limitation leaf. Very good in a very good dust jacket supplied from a first trade edition of the book, with the $2.00 price intact on the front flap (the price was clipped on the jackets supplied by the publisher for the signed limited edition). Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. This copy is unique, because it is from the personal library, with her bookplate, of Libby Holman Reynolds, the controversial bisexual actress and torchsinger who married an heir to the Reynolds tobacco fortune and flaunted social mores of her time. The bookplate portrays her famous mansion in Connecticut, Treetops. A rare and important first edition of a classic children's story with a distinctive association which we think the free-thinking author would have appreciated.
