Frank Herbert
1969 Frank Herbert Signed DUNE MESSIAH 1st Edition Hardcover w/ DJ
New York: G P Putnam's Sons, 1969.

Page 141 has a wrinkle that originated during the printing process (see photos). None of the other pages are torn, dog-eared, missing, or damaged. Although this is not my personal copy of Dune Messiah, I … [Click Below for Full Description]
