About This Item

Philadelphia/New York: Chilton, 1965. A First Edition, First Printing 1st Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Near fine and appears unread in a near fine unclipped dust jacket. Volume virtually without flaw save for the top edge being just a bit dusty. Jacket with extremely light wear, limited to the spine tips. Jacket unclipped but with the price of $5.95 crossed off and $4.59 written in. Although this was done in ink, it has almost entirely been erased and is barely evident. A beautiful copy.

Synopsis

The first in the epic science fiction series of the same name, Dune is set on the desert planet Arrakis, host to "the Spice" - the most important resource in the universe, needed for interplanetary travel and coveted for its effects on longevity and granting incredible psychic powers among humans. Amidst an intergalactic power struggle, would-be heir to the planet's stewardship Paul Atreides is cast out into the desert to die following a coup. Joining a group of zealots called the Fremen, Paul soon becomes considered their messiah - Mahdi - and recognizes in them a formidable fighting force with whom he can retake control of Arrakis. Dune won both the Hugo Award for Best Novel and the Nebula Award for Best Novel.
