First edition

Antoine de SAINT-EXUPERY Terre des hommes


Terre des hommes

Gallimard, Paris 1939, 13,5x19,5cm, relié sous étui.

First edition, one of 23 numbered copies on Hollande paper, tirage de tête after one copy on Whatman and 9 on China paper.
Light brown Oasis goatskin by Morina Mongin, covers and spine with dreamlike decoration of humanized mountains after a drawing by Peter Sis, printed in brown colored film and heightened in ochre, sky-blue suede pastedowns, brown suede endpapers, the first endpaper with a lunette of modified sky-blue leather printed in colored film, covers and spine preserved. Half light brown Oasis goatskin slipcase, wood-effect paper boards lined with brown suede; a spectacular set.
A fine copy with all margins in a handsome binding reaching back to the pilot's spirit, for whom every mountain, every valley, every house is “a landscape which could be friend or foe.”
