A 'first state' from the collection of the late Joshua Hutchinson Hutchinson (ca 1829 - d.1891) was bought by the London dealer Robert Dunthorne (b. ca 1851) for £5.5.0 in 1892 and a 'second state' by the New York print dealer Frederick Keppel (1845-1912) for £3.3.0. 24 One of these - a delicately wiped impression - was immediately bought by Charles Lang Freer (1856-1919) (), who also bought a first state - a somewhat unevenly wiped impression - a few years later, in 1905 ().
