How many were sold?

Just wondering. I bought a hardcover copy of "Jericho Mosaic" over e-Bay for the amazingly paltry sum of $13.00,(correct, thirteen dollars), and it was an old library copy in wonderful condition,(Possibly due to Whittemores'lack of notoriety?) I am very slowly removing traces of the library stamps(fine-grit sandpaper works very well for this) and such while keeping the plastic over the jacket. I read somewhere that only about eight-thousand copies of "JM" were sold. I wonder if these copies were sold ONLY to libraries, and how many were sold to book lovers?
I can only hope the sales of the reprints now reflect the true value of his work. Thanks for listening.
