As already said in this post, I collect different editions, languages and versions of "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry since 2006. Even if it is my favourite book since I was 15 years old, it all has begun fortuitously, as a mere Serendipity accident, but over the years collecting the book has become really important to me.

The book, voted in 1999 among the first five most important books of the 20th century by "Le Monde", has been published in over 250 languages and dialects and it is also available as an audio book, graphic novel and in Braille.

It would be easy to check eBay etc. in order to find all the languages at once and to buy them in two or three "shopping rushes".
It is of course way more exciting to look for the book in shops and flea markets, to check in new places if I am on holiday somewhere, to ask friends and colleagues to bring back a copy of the book for me if they are planning to visit an exotic location, to find an old copy thanks to Serendipity or to get a used one from someone I met.

It is something very different and more personal, for me, and I love to wait for it and I also love to not know how I am going to find the next piece of my "treasure". It is already waiting for me, somewhere...


So, thanks, thanks and thanks to Adiacente, Alessandra, Andrea, Angela, Benoît, Chiara, Claire, Claudio, Danila, Dirk, Egon, Ellen, Fra, Giacomo, Giorgio, Giuliano, Inma, Jacopo, Jari, Julia, Luca, Maddy, Maria, Marilena, Oleksandra, Roman, Rossana, Sonia, Stefan, Stephan, Tina, Verena, Vittorio and Yitian! Thanks for your help!

Next week I will publish two posts: in the first one you will find all my 'Little Princes', in the second one you will find all the languages I don't have (yet!). Stay tuned!

Wie schon in diesem Post erklärt, sammle ich seit 2006 verschiedene Ausgaben, Sprachen und Versionen des Buches "Der kleine Prinz" von Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Obwohl es mein Lieblingsbuch ist, seitdem ich 15 bin, hat alles ganz zufällig aus reiner Serendipität begonnen, aber das Sammeln ist mit den Jahren etwas sehr Wichtiges für mich geworden.

Das Buch, das 1999 unter den ersten fünf der wichtigsten Bücher des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts von "Le Monde" gewählt wurde, wird in über 250 Sprachen und Dialekten veröffentlicht und es ist auch als Hörbuch, Comicbuch und in Blindenschrift verfügbar.

Es wäre zwar einfach, eBay usw. zu durchsuchen, um alle Sprachen auf einmal zu finden und in zwei oder drei "Einkaufsrunden" zu kaufen.
Es ist jedoch sicher spannender, sowohl nach dem Buch in Läden und auf Flohmärkten zu suchen, als auch an neuen Orten nach dem Buch zu stöbern, wenn ich irgendwo im Urlaub bin. Es ist auch schön, Freunde und Kollegen darum zu bitten, mir eine Kopie des Buches mitzubringen, wenn sie in ein exotisches Land fliegen, eine alte Kopie des Buches aus Serendipität zu finden oder Eine von jemandem zu bekommen, den ich kennengelernt habe.

Es ist für mich etwas wirklich Anderes und Persönlicheres und ich mag es, auf das Buch zu warten und nicht zu wissen, wie ich das nächste Stück meines "Schatzes" finden werde. Es wartet schon auf mich, irgendwo...

Ein herzlichen riesigen Dank Adiacente, Alessandra, Andrea, Angela, Benoît, Chiara, Claire, Claudio, Danila, Dirk, Egon, Ellen, Fra, Giacomo, Giorgio, Giuliano, Inma, Jacopo, Jari, Julia, Luca, Maddy, Maria, Marilena, Oleksandra, Roman, Rossana, Sonia, Stefan, Stephan, Tina, Verena, Vittorio und Yitian deswegen! Danke für Eure Unterstützung!

Nächste Woche veröffentliche ich zwei Posts: in dem ersten findet man alle meinen "Kleinen Prinzen", in dem zweiten findet man alle Sprachen, die ich nocht nicht gesammelt habe. Bleibt gespannt!

Come ho già detto in questo post, a partire dal 2006 colleziono il libro "Il piccolo principe" di Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in diverse edizioni, lingue e versioni. Nonostante sia il mio libro preferito da quando avevo 15 anni, è iniziato tutto per caso, per pura serendipità, ma con gli anni la collezione è diventata molto importante per me.

Il libro, votato nel 1999 fra i cinque libri più importanti del ventesimo secolo da "Le Monde", è stato pubblicato in oltre 250 lingue e dialetti ed è anche disponibile come audiolibro, graphic novel e in Braille.

Sarebbe facile controllare su eBay etc. per trovare tutte le lingue in una volta sola e acquistarle in due o tre "attacchi di shopping".
Ovviamente è molto più emozionante cercare il libro in negozi e mercatini delle pulci, rovistare in nuovi posti se sono in vacanza da qualche parte, chiedere ad amici e colleghi di portarmene una copia se sono in procinto di volare verso località esotiche, trovarne una vecchia copia per serendipità o riceverne una usata da qualcuno che ho incontrato.

Per me è molto diverso e molto più personale, così, e adoro aspettare e non sapere ancora come troverò il prossimo pezzo del mio "tesoro". Mi sta aspettando da qualche parte...

Quindi grazie, grazie, grazie di cuore ad Adiacente, Alessandra, Andrea, Angela, Benoît, Chiara, Claire, Claudio, Danila, Dirk, Egon, Ellen, Fra, Giacomo, Giorgio, Giuliano, Inma, Jacopo, Jari, Julia, Luca, Maddy, Maria, Marilena, Oleksandra, Roman, Rossana, Sonia, Stefan, Stephan, Tina, Verena, Vittorio e Yitian! Grazie per il vostro aiuto!

La prossima settimana pubblicherò due post: nel primo troverete tutti i miei "Piccoli principi", nel secondo troverete invece tutte le lingue che mi mancano (per ora...). Vi aspetto!
