Here's a follow-up to an earlier post of mine and now I'm finally adding some pics. It's just convenient right now since I'm in the process of moving.

First off my Dune books in hardcover and trade softcover:

Image

Upper left is French edition with a peculiar non-Dune:ish cover illustration. It shows a dead astronaut in a beach landscape with palm trees and a heighliner looming overhead in the sky... Interestingly almost the same pic was used in the cult movie "Def-Con 4" a few years after this was printed (1982) which is about a few astronauts that return to a radioactive wasteland Earth after WWIII.
Image

The orange one is 1976 Gollancz, the blue is the very first Chilton print but without dust jacket (anyone got a spare???), the one with DJ is 3rd print (thanks Kwisatz!), there's Dune Illustrated and the rest are Swedish editions.

Next Dune Messiah HCs: Putnam 2nd, Swedish and Spanish
Image

Other Dune books, Putnam & Gollancz retails + Encyclopedia in HC/DJ:
Image

Other Herbert books:
Image

Black one is Jesus without DJ, Lazarus is signed by Frank, Whipping Star is Putnam with DJ (again my favorite cover) and Green Brain is NEL HC/DJ edition.

My pockets are:
Image

The "Worlds Beyond Dune" is a collection of Pandora and Jorj McKie books. I'm waiting for a "Dune Trilogy" set still in its original plastic seal to arrive by mail..

Hmm, I didn't know you could get The Ascension Factor with that cover art in paperback. Took me ages to find one on Ebay in hardcover.

I bought mine from the local bookstore for just a couple of bucks.. I see lots of them out there for very low prices. There are bunch of hardcovers out there too for quite reasonable amounts. Btw, we shouldn't forget that Bill should get the most credit for that book since he was the one who actually wrote it.

At last ! :clap:

It's a fabulous Cicerone, isn't it ?
... but remember, it contains some errors and misattributions (especially with the cover art subfield).

See you soon at LLB :handgestures-thumbupright:

      Nice addition, but that is not really a "complete" primary source, or even the "most complete." After a more thorough examination I'm confident that the Greenwood book is more complete as it lists many, many more printings of most of the books. Stephenson-Payne's bibliography is a good one for identifying a wide variety of the materials that are out there, but definitely not every single version of each that is available. I have also identified a LOT more secondary source material then PSP lists. Once I get my ass in gear I'll update my own "bibliography" with it.

      Also, I spoke to PSP a few years ago and he told me that his (former?) partner, Crumm, may have done more work on that bibilography, and may have some sources that have not yet found their way to print. I always meant to follow up with Crumm, but kind of dropped the ball. Might be worth an e-mail to him now. I think Crumm's address is in the front cover of that pamphlet.

      I don't have Greenwood edition yet to compare. I also meant only sources in English and my opinion was based on what Phil told me few days ago ;)

      Drumm! That's what is was, not Crumm. Thanks.

      I think that there is a third one out there somewhere too, that I have not found yet; a third commercial, printed bibliography, that is.

      Anyway, LLB is gonna blow them all away.

      Thanks buddy :handgestures-salute:

      The bibliographer needs to access the highest level that is available - ideally the primary level: i.e. the book itself. One must bear in mind, though, that primary sources are generally not 100% accurate. In some cases, the accuracy of a composite information can be higher than that of the individual primary and other sources! This is because comparing numerous sources often enables the resolution of spelling errors, name variations, dates and other details.

      PS: Kwisatz, I forgot the name of the guy who wrote the 1st bibliographic pamphlet of FH's works (1976). :think:

          As O'Reilly cited him:

          Yenter, Charles C. "Notes for a Bibliography of Frank Herbert." Privately published. 1015 5. Steele, Tacoma, Washington 98405. Thorough listing of editions of Herbert's work; incomplete only by a bibliophile's standard.

          I think it was from 1977 or 1978 cause of mentioning Dosadi Experiment.

              Yea, that's it. Now that I think about it, it was just velo-bound pages from a very detail orienteded SF fan in Washington State. I also get confused because later editions of the Greenwood book have partial attribution to Willard.

                  HAH! Herbert read 200 books and pamflets about deserts and ecology ... KJA didn't even read ONE! when he "created" hellhole. Thanks you Kwisatz for this enjoyable read ... I remember I read it before, but wow! does this tell the story of a true writer. You can taste the quality when you read Frank's words.

                      "...Dune is a sword-and-sorcery story."

                      How many times have I said Dune was Fantasy? :P

                      That was a good ending sentence. Tied together alot of his points.
