    A Superb Copy in Dust Jacket

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

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

    Publisher's light blue cloth with white lettering to spine. In original pictorial dust jacket. Head and foot of spine lightly rubbed, upper corner of rear board very slightly bumped, very slight fading to the cloth at the board edges. A couple of small faint stains on the fore-edge, one just visible at the outer edge of pages 279-314, another small faint blue stain on the top edge. Faint foxing to the top edge and to cloth turn-in. A near fine copy. In the original first issue color pictorial dust jacket by John Schoenherr, with the price $5.95 at the upper right corner of the front flap and the publisher's imprint in four lines at the bottom of the rear flap. Jacket with minor edge wear at spine extremities and slight creasing to front and rear panels at flap folds near top of spine, two tiny closed tears at the top edge of the front panel and the top edge of the spine, light foxing visible on the verso. Overall, a near fine copy of an exceedingly rare classic of science fiction.

    won the 1965 Nebula Award for Best Novel and shared the 1966 Hugo Award. The book has sold over 12 million copies, more than any other science fiction novel in history.

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

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
