"One of [the] most celebrated works of modern SF."Frank Herbert. Dune. Philadelphia / New York: Chilton Books, .
First edition. Large octavo. 412 pages including multiple appendixes.
Publisher's light blue cloth with white spine titles. In original pictorial dust jacket. Moderate wear to the board edges and spine ends. Spine slightly cocked. Corners rubbed. Internal contents bright and clean. Dust jacket moderately worn and somewhat toned on the reverse, with minimal paper loss at the spine ends and flap fold ends, a quarter-inch split along the front flap fold, some creasing to the folds, and one small stain to the reverse of the dust jacket at the top of the front panel. Overall, a very good copy of an exceedingly rare classic of science fiction.
Herbert spent six years researching and writing this first-ever ecological sci-fi thriller, but it was rejected by numerous publishers before finally being accepted by Chilton, a minor publishing house known primarily for auto repair manuals. Although the book was not an instant bestseller, it won the 1965 Nebula Award for Best Novel and shared the 1966 Hugo Award. Dune has sold 12 million copies and counting, more than any other science fiction novel in history.
