Re: 1999 Harper Collins Deluxe Ed. Hobbit

Ok. I have a response from MPG Books regarding the paper issue. I am not sure how valuable this information is to the community, but hopefully it will add to the general collector knowledge base.

I emailed MPG books with the 'acid-free paper' question specifically as it pertained to the 1999 Harper Collins Limited Deluxe Hobbit. Here is the response I just got:

Dear Mr Shiner,

I can confirm that this title was printed on MPG Bookwove, which has been acid-free stock since approx 1990. We are still stocking the same grade of paper due to it’s excellent archival and environmental qualities, and it has subsequently also gained FSC accreditation.

I hope this answers your query, but please don’t hesitate to contact me if you require any further information or clarification.

So, as most of us probably expected, the book was printed on quality paper. Case closed. Thanks for the responses and the help provided by the forum members!
