The Little Prince: Taking Flight

October 14, 2022 through February 5, 2023

The Morgan holds the original manuscript and art for one of the world’s most widely read and cherished books, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince (1943). Writing in exile during the second World War, Saint-Exupéry distilled his experience as a pilot into the unforgettable fictive landscape of The Little Prince—a world of wise creatures, headstrong plants, and lovely, lonesome deserts.
