Prince" in Azeri
I'm looking for the Azeri (Cyrillic) version of the children's
book "Little Prince", written by French author St.
Antoine Exupery in 1943.
I've been collecting "Little Prince" since I was 16
or 17 years old. Now I have about 110 of the existing 130 versions.
But I'm still missing the Azeri version. I'm having such a difficult
time finding it. I myself have translated this book into the
Extremadurian language which has now almost become extinct in
"Little Prince" has helped me make marvelous friends
with people all over the world who have assisted me in finding
rare versions. It has introduced me to the translators of the
Nepali, Corsican, Maltese and Konkani editions (Konkani is spoken
on the west coast of India). Even though I can't speak most of
these languages, it helps me understand more about the structure
of their grammars and appreciate the beauty of their alphabets.
I would be so grateful if someone out there could help me find
"Little Prince" in Azeri. By the way, if you need anything
from Spain, please let me know. Thank you.
