About This Item

A remarkable opportunity to collect the iconic first edition, first impression of Frank Herberts' masterpiece 'Dune', with the exceedingly rare first state dust-jacket.

With the the arrival of the Denis Villeneuve's blockbuster adaptation, the market for these already scarce first editions has exploded and with a second film in the works due in 2022 and predications of a major cinematic franchise, this is an incredible investment piece.

First edition, first impression, first state dust-jacket. Original publishers blue cloth boards. Near-fine condition throughout. The jacket has had some very minor restoration. Laid in signature by Frank Herbert. A wonderful and rare example.
