Rare Book Hub cites just two copies at auction: in 1904 at Anderson and 2009 at Dorothy Sloan, with a third copy attributed to Rosenbach catalogue 14 (1948). Copies are also recorded in five institutions: the National Portrait Gallery; the New-York Historical Society; the University of Texas, Center for American History; the San Jacinto Museum of History Association; and the Library of Congress.
