Frank Herbert
Frank Herbert (1966-76) 'Dune' trilogy, UK and US first editions 1/1
very good to fine. Frank Herbert (1966-1976) 'Dune' trilogy, all three first editions, first printings. The set is comprised of: 1) 'Dune' (1966), published by Gollancz in the UK. Very good book in very good minus dust jacket. Nice boards without any bumps. Spine ends straight and not pushed. A neat previous owner's name written on the front paste down in almost calligraphic hand. This is not visible behind the dust jacket's front flap, but is mentioned here for accuracy. Internally clean without any previous owners' scribbles. The page block is toned as a result of port quality paper used. However, the camera accentuates the toning especially compared to the two other volumes. The dust jacket is correctly priced at 30/- net. It has minor chipping to the edges as shown. The laminate has started to 'bubble' which is also quite common with this title. At the reverse top edge there is fortification tape. 2) 'Dune Messiah', published by Putnam in the US. A fine book in a near fine dust jacket. No evidence that the book has been read. Tight binding with sharp corners.Only trifle of rubbing from sliding in and out of shelf only noticeable to the trained eye. Page block white like snow. No previous owners' scribbles of any sorts. Correctly priced dust jacket at $4.95 and 6910 code at bottom flap. A little rubbing edge wear and one tear that reaches the 'A' in Frank at the top edge. 3) 'Children of Dune', published by Berkley Publishing Corporation in the US. A near fine book in a fine dust jacket. Book is unread with clean boards. The lower corners are slightly bumped. Page block … [Click Below for Full Description]
