101. The Little Prince - Large Print Edition - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £13.95  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Little Prince is one of the most famous books ever written. It is said to have been translated into 300 languages and dialects.

The original in French has also been reprinted by Ishi Press as Le Petit Prince - grande édition imprimée ISBN 4871879275

It was first published by Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1943. Copies of the first edition are rare and will sell for more than one thousand dollars.

Here we have used for this reprint the original translation by Katherine Woods.

There are at least six other published English Language translations and so many translations in other languages that it is difficult to count them. For example, there are said to be 70 translations into Chinese.

The book was written in French. The English translation was dictated by the publisher.

The Little Prince describes his travels to ten planets. The other little planets are asteroids that circle the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. The asteroids have numbers rather than names. The Little Prince lives on one of these asteroids and visits the others.

It appears to be similar to and a predecessor of the “Star Treck” TV series involving a space ship that goes from one planet to another finding different life forms and new adventures on each planet.

112. The Riddle of the Sands - Erskine Childers

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: £16.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

Childers' lone masterpiece, "The Riddle of the Sands", considered the first modern spy thriller, is recognisable as the brilliant forerunner of the realism of Graham Greene and John le Carre. Its unique flavour comes from its fine characterization, richly authentic background of inshore sailing and vivid evocation of the late 1890s - an atmosphere of mutual suspicion and intrigue that was soon to lead to war.

116. The Town Below A Novel (Large Print 16pt) - Roger Lemelin

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Town Below takes place in St. Joseph Parish of Quebec City's Saint - Sauveur suburb. Saint - Sauveur is a parochial and provincial place where narrow piety and corruption can be found in every corner, and Denis and Lise, two adolescents in love, scandalize the town with their affair. Scheming politicians and clergymen and grasping social climbers mix with salt - of - the - earth citizens in a rough - and - tumble satiric assault on pre - Quiet Revolution Quebec mores and attitudes. The Town Below won the Prix David and the Prix de la langue fran aise. Lemelin was also awarded Guggenheim and Rockefeller fellowships. A bestseller in Quebec when it originally appeared, The Town Below has been called the ''pioneer novel of working - class Quebec'' and exploded, with great controversy, the smothering social and religious strictures prevalent among postwar Qu b cois. The novel was first published in English by Reynal & Hitchcock in 1948.

119. The Vermilion Boat - Sudhin N. Ghose

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £15.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

‘Sisi-Magar became my boat, and straddled on its back I was transformed into a sea-god—one who defied the elements and to whom the wind and the waves paid homage. They no longer raved about death, but spoke of abundant life.’

A young orphan leaves for Calcutta, full of hope, to attend university there. But, on reaching the city, he finds he has been betrayed and left penniless and homeless by Jogin-Da, the guardian whom he respected and blindly trusted. Even as he scours the streets of Calcutta for shelter and sustenance, the young man finds himself drawn to the city’s glorious past, and repelled by the religious prejudices and narrowmindedness of its residents. At university, too, he comes into conflict with his peers who thoughtlessly ape Western culture and ignore the best parts of their own traditions. In a time of gathering disillusionment and disappointment, the young man finds a mentor in an ageing professor, Profulla Babu, and love—of a sort—with his Latin tutor, Roma. He receives a chance at redemption, too, after he befriends Sisi-Magar, a tame porpoise in a temple pond, which he must set free in the Ganges. 

Published in 1953 and now being reissued for the first time in more than half a century, The Vermilion Boat is the third novel in Sudhin N. Ghose’s quartet which follows the life and career of an unnamed young man. As much a coming-of-age story as an account of the making of the great metropolis of Calcutta, The Vermilion Boat brings together history, legend and myth to create a rich, sprawling narrative.
