Description

    "One of the most celebrated works of modern SF."

    Frank Herbert. Dune. Philadelphia/New York: Chilton Books, [1965].

    First edition. Large octavo. 412 pages including multiple appendices.

    Bound in blue cloth with silver lettering on spine. Faint sunning to spine and top edges of boards; minor bumping to lower corners. Decorative endpapers. Illustrated dust jacket shows the slightest wear at edges. Overall near fine condition.

    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 eventually sold 12 million copies, more than any other science fiction novel in history. This is a particularly fine copy of one of the most important modern science fiction tales ever written - a must have for any serious science fiction collector.

    "One of [the] most celebrated works of modern SF." (Barron 199)
