This is very helpful - I sincerely appreciate your quick and thoughtful reply. I'll look for a copy of the Smith book for possible additional details. Like you, I have been unable to find any images of his in U.S. collections. I look forward to seeing your book on Dally when it is available.

If you have any information that may be helpful, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
