Herbert, Frank
Chilton Books, New York/ Philadelphia, 1965. First book club edition of the author's masterpiece. Octavo, original boards. Signed by Frank Herbert on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of shelfwear to the extremities. Jacket art by John Schoenherr. An exceptional example, uncommon signed. Dune was awarded the first Nebula award for best science fiction novel, shared the Hugo award, and "became one of the most famous of all science fiction novels" (The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction). Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Muad'Dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family--and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream. A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
