Saint-Exupéry’s last flying was to collect intelligence on German troop movements in and around the Rhone Valley preceding the Allied invasion of southern France. He took off in an unarmed P-38 on his ninth reconnaissance mission from an airbase on Corsica. He did not return, dramatically vanishing without a trace. Just like the Little Prince.

Printze Txikia. As Javier Tejerina told me, this book was … written in the standarised Euskera (Euskera Batúa). The language was in danger of dissapearing, was forbidden in the years of Franco dictatorship. So, it was unificated, created common grammatical rules based specially in the central dialects (less exposed to the borderline languages, Spanish and French). This way is was possible to teach to children in schools after the death of Franco. And now every children speak Euskera again, so future exists for this stoneage language.

Again, from Javier Tejerina: Basque Country is one of the most beautiful places in Spain. San Sebastián is a beauty, Bilbao too, and one of the best cuisine of the world. I hope you can visit it some day. Basque people are very different than Spanish, more noble people, reserved but very friendly, and very proud of their culture. I live in another region of Spain from 15 years ago, and I see clearly the differences. Basque language, also called Euskera, is wonderfully weird. It has no similarities to Celtic languages nor any other language in the world. Some say Armenian language has a lot of similar words, but I am not sure of that. It is a prehistoric language. There are some curiosities that suggest us that it is a very very old language.

Pangeran Kecil, 1979. This is the first Indonesian translation of Le Petit Prince, published by Pustaka Jaya in 1979. The translation started when an author, Wing Karjo, asked his students to make a project to translate Le Petit Prince into Indonesian language.

The blue box mentioned that this book “Belongs to the Ministry of Education and Culture. Not for Sale. Presidential Order No 6/1980.”

It is extremely difficult to find this book, even in Indonesia. I found this one in a flea book market of Palasari, in Bandung city. I consider this book too valuable, so I read it only once. So I read Le Petit Prince more in english and french editions.


 

Le Petit Prince – Pangeran Cilik, 2007. A translation by Gramedia. Like many Gramedia translation book, the book title is kept in its original language, subtitled by the Indonesian translation of the title.


 

Si Pangeran Kecil, 2013. Experiencing the difficulty to find an Indonesian translation, I started to translate the book myself. This translation was written to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the publication of Le Petit Prince. I wrote this translation while travelling to some Indonesian cities, including Makassar, Semarang, Palembang, Denpasar, Bandung, and Jakarta. The source of the translation was a text in french, found in Australian Gutenberg project website.

I found a local publisher willing to publish this book. But the progress was awfully slow. Then I decided to self-published it via Lulu, so any LPP lovers can buy it directly from Lulu with virtually no constraints.


 

Sang Pangeran Ketjil, 2014. I rewrote Si Pangeran Kecil into an old Indonesian style. This books uses old idioms and old spelling system, called Van Ophuijsen orthography, used in Indonesia when this country was called Hindia Belanda, under Dutch administration, before 1942.


 

Le Petit Prince, 1950. in French and some Dutch annotation, was published in Groningen and Jakarta, 1950. I could not get more information, including whether this particular edition was printed / published in Groningen or Jakarta.
