Statistically speaking, this had to have happened before. Dumbledore and Voldemort knew what kind of magic had been used to create the Protection and both identified it as "Ancient" which means this sort of thing has been happening since ancient times.

I think with Harry, it's not so much the wonder of the protection as it is that he is the most High Profile case. Situations like his (someone sacrificing themselves for another) are kind of common. It's just that in his case, it involved someone High Profile like Voldemort and ended the Major War happening. So it attracted more attention and more effort was put into Harry's case to scare off the Death Eaters.
