SALES & COLLECTORS
One impression of the first state, from the important collection of the late Joshua Hutchinson Hutchinson (ca 1829 - d.1891) (), was sold at auction to the print dealers Deprez & Gutekunst in 1892 for £1.8.0 - a very modest price. 19 A beautiful second state printed in black ink on ivory laid paper was acquired by Henry Studdy Theobald (1847-1934), in London (). Mansfield's own impression of the second state was later sold to Harris G. Whittemore (d. ca 1937), and was bought with the Pennell Fund by the Library of Congress ().
