ANTIQUE ORIGINAL VANITY FAIR LITHOGRAPH PRINT - Frank Wootton - Sept. 8, 1909 Print measures approximately 10 1/2" x 15 1/2". It is in good condition with clean margins and will mat and frame nicely. Francis Leonard Wootton (1893 – 1940) was an Australian horse racing jockey who had great success as a teenager in the Edwardian era when he was British champion for four successive years. Known as "Frank" or "Frankie", he was also sometimes referred to as "The Wonderboy".

Vanity Fair was a British weekly magazine published from 1868 to 1914. Founded by Thomas Gibson Bowles, it offered its readership articles on fashion, current events, the theatre, books, social events and the latest scandals. A full-page, color lithograph of a contemporary celebrity or dignitary appeared in most issues, and it is for these caricatures that Vanity Fair is best known today. These prints are often referred to as "Spy Prints" after Leslie Ward, perhaps Vanity Fair's most prolific and celebrated artist, who usually signed his works "Spy."
