About This Item

Chilton Book, 1965. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Signed by Author. Stated first edition on copyright page. First state, with a blue cloth binding and a four line publisher address on rear jacket flap. A Frank Herbert signed and inscribed title page from the first paperback printing of Dune is affixed to the front end page. Likely an early signature as later Herbert rarely inscribed or signed anything without crossing out his printed name. Hardcover in jacket, price of $5.95 intact on jacket flap. Small mark to jacket flap and some slight sunning to jacket spine. End pages have been professionally replaced. Binding is strong. Some rubbing and edge wear to points, bottom cloth worn through to boards on tips. Text is unmarked. A few dog ears and some staining to page 110. Verso of jacket flaps have some light glue residue from where they used to be attached to paste downs. A presentable copy in very good condition. Jacket in Mylar. Additional photos available upon request. International shipping is not available for this book.

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.
