SAINT-EXUPÉRY, Antoine de (1900-44). Pen-and-ink drawing of the "Little Prince," sight 4¾ x 4¾ inches, on paper, with fragment of small sketch at top, signed "Antoine de Saint-Exupéry" at right of figure. Matted and framed.
A very fine, full-figure drawing of "Le Petit Prince" from his book of that name, Saint-Exupery's enduring rumination on life and human nature. The present drawing is the same portrait as that on p, 11 in chapter two. It was captioned "Here is the best portrait that, later, I was able to make of him."
