Copies in private collections

I’m trying to trace as many copies of Robert Lowth’s grammar that might still be around. Alston’s inventoy of 1965 is understandably incomplete after forty years, and I discovered that libraries possess copies of the grammar that are not in Alston. Many copies must be in people’s private possession; I myself, for instance, own copies of Lowth, Murray, Fisher, Fenning, Ward, and Fenn. So if you would let me know whether you possess copies of Lowth’s grammar, I could compile a list of addenda much like the one Maria Rodriguez-Gil published for Ann Fisher in HSL/SHL.
