The few copies produced within this limitation have quite likely either been broken up long ago for individual framing or are still being held in deep, private collections. OCLC locates just two copies institutionally held, one in the US at the Thomas P. O'Neill Library of Boston College and one in France at the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris.
