Since its publication seventy years ago, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince has captivated millions. But did you realize, the tale was written and first published in New York, during the author’s two year stay there during World War 2?

To celebrate the book’s New York connection, the Morgan Library and Museum has created a major exhibition: The Little Prince: A New York Story, on now through April 2014. It features original watercolors, manuscripts, letters, photographs, even the silver identity bracelet Saint-Exupéry was wearing when his plane tragically went down in 1944.
