I'd have expected the pages to be a bit more yellowed after 40+ years, you know? Did you nick them from some museum?
Now scribble "to #1 son" on it and blackmail Brian for millions!
Based on what I see there, it looks to me like your green library re-bind is in fact a first/first, though I am confused why it does not say "First Printing," as the second, third and fourth all do.

At the time Chilton took quite a gamble by printing this book. The first print batch contained only a few thousand books because they were far from sure they would sell them.
I can imagine that they started mentioning a second, third and fourth print when they indeed started printing those because the book did sell. I will see what Brian Herbert tells about this in his biography.

I have a special bookcase dedicated to Dune with all the prints I have as well as the computer games, board games, movies, movie poster ... and of course the DUNE perfume by Christan Dior
