The Little Prince in Irish

Help me acquire The Little Prince in Irish (An Prionsa Beag.)

I have a goal to make a nuisance of myself in 12 languages. I plan to use The Little Prince (one of my favorite books) as a study aid and I already have it in 11 of them (including Esperanto) but I have been unable to get ahold of a copy in Gaelic. The only edition I know of was published as An Prionsa Beag by Fat Lagan Press in 1997 (ISBN 1873687338) and it has been out of print for a while.

Best answer: Not sure where you live. In the UK there's one copy in the public library in Haringay, which you should be able to get through inter-library loan. In the US there's a copy in Cleveland Public Library. Their interlibrary loan page on Worldcat says you can borrow items if you are based in other states through your own library system - 10 dollar charge.

Maybe search around on Litriocht? Or contact a second hand book shop like Greenes and see if they can get a hold of one for you?

I have a copy in Bengali I'm learning to read from :P

How to find rare and out-of-print books is a great site by a librarian with lots of links to international used bookstores and search sites. It also includes some search strategies to use while locating your book. The site is a bit unattractive but the info is very good.

These people appear to have it.
These people even cheaper.
I know nothing about the reliability or honesty of either business, just googled "an preonsa beag" and that's what came up.

Or contact the publisher to see if they have any back copies.
