About This Item

Chilton Book Company, 1965-01-01. Hardcover . LikeNew/Fine. Full red cloth boards, DJ price $10.95, ISBN printed below DJ price and on rear cover; number line reads "8 9 0 4 3 2 1 0"; in my own hand is "[1972]" written in pencil to the front endpaper, which would indicate that at some point I thought I was smart enough to figure out that was the printing date. Signed & lined on title page, inscribed "To Kirk". This came with a few items signed by SF artist Tim Kirk, but I have no way of knowing if a)., he goes by Kirk and b)., it is inscribed to him. Very minor rubbing to white map at rear panel, very light shelfwear. Main flaw is a few spots of foxing to top foredge. Near fine to fine overall. Herbert's signature on our website page of signatures is taken from this book, and matches all previous signatures we have handled.

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.
