    I found copies of God Emperor & Chapterhouse on ebay in this format and covers to match my trade copy of Heretics. I've been trying to locate the first three novels (Dune, Dune Messiah, & Children of Dune) but no luck so far.

    Turns out I do not have a hard copy of Heretics, but here are my personal Dune novels vs the classroom sets I have.

    and

    I also have all four Pandora novels, Eye, The Best of Frank Herbert, Dosadi Experiment, & The Godmakers, all in paperback.

    I want to get the newer hardcovers used to round out my collection as well as the Berkley trade paperbacks

    Great additions Rob!


    I have seen the top copies individual at the half price book stores here it town, but they are always in poor shape. When I see good ones Ill will pick up for sure. I need to get those two you have (book club edtions) and Chapterhouse still.

    My real wants are

    the easton press
    the blue UK
    Pennington UK cover

        Today a very nice looking first edition hard back of The White Plague was delivered. Me happy :)

        I haven't been here in a long time, but added a few rarities and other editions to my Dune collection and wanted to share.

        Up first is the 6 book set from Easton Press.

        To my surprise, I also managed to find one of the original cover editions bound in black leather instead of the usual red.
        The listing actually said blue, but it definitely looks black to me. Easton Press must have only done a small run of these, because the black/blue copies almost never show up.

        One of my favorite parts of my collection are the uncorrected proofs. They are challenging to find and were usually produced in very small numbers.
        I was fortunate enough to add two of them in the last few weeks.

        The first is the UK proof of Eye.

        Image

        The second is the UK proof for God Emperor of Dune. This one has been particularly hard to find and I was beginning to wonder if the publisher had even produced one. Now I know.

        Image

        Even better, it's signed!

        Image

        I think that's all for now, enjoy!
