Antoine de Saint-Exupéry - Terre des hommes
Grand Prix du roman de l'Académie française, in 1939

Edition designed and created by Lidis and reserved for the Guilde des Bibliophiles de la Librairie Rombaldi.

Work illustrated by the navy painter André Hambourg, with 12 engravings on wood in colour out of text, plus the original cover.

The central point of his story is his accident with his navigator, André Prévot, in the Libyan Sahara in 1935: the two men almost died of thirst and were saved in extremis by a Bedouin who saw them from a distance.
The events recounted feed reflections on a number of themes: friendship, death, heroism, the search for meaning and truth... Saint-Exupéry expresses his humanist values in particular in this work.

Paperback, cover with flaps.
In a slipcase restored to new.

Limited printing of 2,663 copies.
