Jammes has about three of the unmounted prints; he thinks LeGray could have printed the 28; they are probably DuCamp's personal examples. The last print from the series mounted in the sketchbook has been retained by Jammes, sold Lot 46, Sotheby's (Oct. 27, 1999), bought by Hans Kraus who sold it to the Metropolitan Museum.
