Is there a quick way from bash to determine the currently installed version of libtiff (i.e. 3.6.1, 3.7.4), a utility or just plain somewhere to look?

Please help I urgently need to know this information to resolve some problems I am having processing Photoshop TIFF files and an "unknown field with tag 34665 (0x8769) encountered" error.

I notice that the output of

   convert -list format | grep TIFF

includes the value of TIFF_VERSION in parenthesis. Unfortunately, this value seems to reflect an ABI version rather than the specific version of libtiff.

It would be useful if libtiff included a library call to return the libtiff release version.
