Description:
Frank Herbert: Dune First Edition. (Philadelphia: Chilton Books, 1965), first edition, first printing, 412 pages, baby blue boards with white lettering on spine, 8vo (6" x 9.25"), first edition dust jacket (in protective Mylar). Herbert's ecology-conscious interstellar opus has sold over ten million copies since 1965, establishing it as the best-selling science fiction novel ever published, and spawning a vast number of sequels. The story of Paul Atreides and his family's political struggles on planet Arrakis was the joint winner of the 1966 Hugo Award and the winner of the first Nebula Award for Best Novel in 1965. A 1975 poll of Locus magazine readers chose Dune as the "all-time best science-fiction novel". And Dune's influence on popular culture can be seen in a number of subsequent works, such as Star Trek, Star Wars, The Matrix films, and Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series, among many others. This copy of the first printing of the first edition of Dune comes housed in a gorgeous Heritage Bindery banded quarter leather slipcase with blue marbled boards. The book itself is in fine condition, with only minimal wear to the edges of the dust jacket. The binding is tight; the text block is very clean, and does not appear to have ever been read! A rare opportunity to obtain a pristine copy of Herbert's masterpiece in its very first published form. From the Ventura Collection.
