Hi folks -- Some of you have already seen this info, so thanks for your patience.
I am looking for someone who can suggest where to look for an answer to my Little Prince Epigraph Question:
50 years ago I had a copy of the Little Prince (in English) with a sweet epigraph in front --
it was a few lines, maybe from a poem, dealing with a pivotal conundrum involving (maybe) sun, snow, flowers...
Current editions lack this epigraph. Any clues about where I might find it? Thanks in advance -- Roger
Results so far:
1. hermitagebook says "no such epigraph in our copy"
2. Phoned Hartcourt (original publisher, now part of Houghton-Mifflin) --
they say contact childrens_publicity@HMHpub.com so I will.
Feb 28 THE LATEST: Harcourt archives very helpful BUT -- no epigraph in all their copies (sigh!)
Another option would be to look on Ebay for a vintage edition like the one you had and contact the seller to ask if they can tell you the epitaph.
Best of luck
