The colophon.The serial number with the Roman numeral (No. 68) in blak ink.

Among the total 12,250 copies of the first edition, 12,250 copies were numbered with Arabic numerals, 300 copies were with Roman numerals and 170 copies were without number. Maybe 30 copies were for the legal deposit and so on. (Alban Cerisier, Il 師ait une foisノ Le Petit Prince, folio 4358, Gallimard (Paris), 2006, p.63)
