Looks like Trotter got some helpful information for you already. I have a query in to HC, I'll let you know if I hear anything back.

Also, you are more than welcome to post your Tolkien eBay auctions here! There is even a whole Forum category for that sort of thing so you don't feel like you have to ask a bibliographical question for each auction you post here.

The book was printed by MPG Books, in Bodmin, Cornwall, UK.

All their current paper is acid-free (http://www.mpg-booksgroup.com/paper.html) but you could email then on print@mpg-books.co.uk and ask what the situtaion was in 1995-1999.

I cannot vouch for the seller (they found me through the "Contact Us" link over there on the left) but the image looks good to my eye, and the price doesn't seem too bad esp. for those of you in or near Sweden.

You can get in touch with the seller through Tradera or I can get you in touch via email directly if you want. The auction ends on the 22nd (2 days from now) - sorry for the delay in getting this posted!

Hello, everyone. I have a question from a potential buyer of one of my ebay auctions and am unable to answer it with any degree of certainty. The person is wondering if the 1999 Harper Collins Deluxe Edition of The Hobbit (black quarterbound leather in cloth case) was printed on acid free paper. I cannot seem to find anywhere that states such a point, for this particular edition. I am fairly sure that HC would have printed this book on high quality paper (and I have never seen a copy of the book that exhibited any signs of yellowing or the likes), but I would like to confirm it. Also, I hate to plug my auctions here, but if anyone is interested in viewing it, you can find it here. Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
