First UK edition, first impression. Though Saint-Exupéry is most famous for his landmark children’s book The Little Prince, Night Flight is his greatest literary work, a remarkable modernist treatment of the new age, man’s position in it and the relationship of technology and humanity. Selected by Connolly in his 100 Books of the Modern Movement.

Octavo. Finely bound by The Chelsea Bindery in royal blue morocco, titles and decoration to spine in silver, raised bands, single rule to boards with a single star in each corner in silver, twin rules and stars to turn-ins in silver, black plain endpapers, silver edges. Some mild foxing to half-title, an excellent copy in a fine binding.
