Inside, librarian Kathy Nelson discovered an ink bottle and an eight by ten photo of Saint-Exupery and his family. She also found five drawings that Cornell had given to Saint-Exupery during a visit to New York.
A friend of Werth’s, Antoine de Saint-Exupery was killed in action in World War II. After his plane disappeared over the Mediterranean, Werth learned of his death through a radio broadcast. He soon learned that Saint-Exupery had previously published a fable in the U.S., and that it was dedicated to him. Unfortunately, Saint-Exupery never lived to see the end of the war, and Werth didn’t get to read the text until five months after his friend’s death.

First published in 1943, it has been translated into 301 languages, sold over 200 million copies worldwide, and adapted into numerous media.
