It's a standard hardback (as well as price, etc) so I highly doubt it. I believe it uses similar paper to the great tales books.

My understanding is that trade hardcovers have been using acid free paper since the early 1990s. The stats I have found say 99% by 1995 or so (it was less than 25% in 1989). Also, most accounts state that the cost is the same or cheaper to use acid free paper vs. horrible wood pulp, so I cannot imagine that HC is still using non-acid-free paper.

Interesting that marketing never fails to mention "acid-free" given its relative ubiquity...

Does anyone know if this set is printed on acid free paper?

Very few things aren't acid-free these days, to the extent that it is very rarely stated. (Edit: I see everyone else has posted the same thing!]
