Antique Original Vanity Fair Cricket Lithograph Print of William Gilbert Grace , June 9, 1877. Caption reads: " Cricket"

W.G. Grace (1848-1915) was an English amateur cricketer who was important in the development of the sport and is widely considered one of its greatest-ever players. The W.G. Grace print is arguably one of the most sought after and collectible of Vanity Fair prints.

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.

Print measures approximately 10 1/2" x 15 1/2". It is in very good condition with a faint mat burn in the margin. There are two tape marks on the back of the print that do not show through. Print and will mat and frame nicely. Please see all photos.
