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!

Thanks! These things are difficult to price in a good economy let alone a recession. It is always a tradeoff between numbers and quality of content. So far ticket sales have been all VIP passes which means a vote for quality and smaller capacity.

These are the letters that David Miller withdrew from sale last year after problems with the text and signature.

They are remarkably similiar to the "Higgins" and "Hooper" letters and I suspect all these "letters" could all be done by the same person, and I am sure that is not Tolkien.
