Saint-Exupéry, Antoine de: The Little Prince (illustrated) v1.0 15 Sept 2007

Done in response to a request. The file is huge because of the illustrations

From Wikipedia:

The Little Prince (French: Le petit prince), published in 1943, is French aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's most famous novel, which he wrote in the United States while renting The Bevin House in Asharoken, New York, on Long Island. The novel includes a number of drawings by Saint-Exupéry himself, which are reproduced in most versions.
The book has been translated into more than 160 languages and, to date has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide. It is one of the top 50 best-selling books.[1] It has been adapted into a movie musical by Lerner and Loewe, two different operas, as well as into an animated series. It is often used as a beginner's book for foreign language students.
Ostensibly a children's book, it makes several profound and idealistic points about life and human nature. In it, Saint-Exupéry tells of his being stranded in the Sahara Desert, thousands of kilometers away from inhabited places, where he meets a young extra-terrestrial (though entirely human-appearing) prince. In their conversations, the author reveals his own views about the follies of mankind and the simple truths that people seem to forget as they grow older. The essence of the book is contained in the famous line uttered by the fox to the Little Prince: "On ne voit bien qu'avec le cœur, l'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux." (It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye). There are also two other main points in the book, both spoken by the fox. They are: "You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed" and "It is the time you have spent for your rose that makes your rose so important".
Throughout the book the children's view on the world, on the main points of the human life and relations between people, which is represented by the Little Prince and partially by the narrator, is set off against the "grown-ups" revealed in memories of the narrator and in the characters, met by the Little Prince on asteroids. But the author underlines, that the "'grown-ups' are like that. One must not hold it against them. Children should always show great forbearance toward grown-up people."

Could some kind moderator change the title of this thread?
It should be 'The Little Prince'.

And should the author be 'Exupery, Antoine de Saint' or 'Saint-Exupery, Antoine de' ?

Clearly I'm better at editing than typing.

The same correction(s) need to be made for the mobi version.

I hope not. Are you sure?

I found the text from a link to the Wikipedia entry on "The Little Prince". There were loads of linked versions freely available, and the one that I clicked on had no mention of any copyright issues.

I think that it was:

In the USA where it is life + 70 is it still in copyright. But in countries where it's life + 50 such as Australia and Canada, it's no longer in copyright.

Thanks for clearing it up, Jon.

Could someone amend the thread title, as I requested earlier? Thanks.

By the way, the surname is "Saint-Exupéry." I think it's normally collated as "Saint-Exupéry, Antoine de".

Edit (from wikipedia):

According to French legal documents and his birth certificate, no hyphen is used in his name, thus written Antoine de Saint Exupéry, not Saint-Exupéry, although most people ignore it, even in France, including publishers. Thus the Armorial de l'ANF, which lists the French nobility, mentions the Saint Exupéry (de) family, without any hyphen.

I've sorted the title according to both messages. If it's not yet correct, just say so and I'll fix it once again.

Thank you, Jon. You are a pearl among men.
Do you think that you might also alter the mobi version?
Thanks again.
