ANTIQUE ORIGINAL VANITY FAIR LITHOGRAPH PRINT - Mr. Theodore Roosevelt, The President of the United States, Sept. 4, 1902.
PLEASE NOTE: this is a very rare proof before lettering, so no date, caption, etc is on the print. An artist's proof, an image made for the artist by the printer, are usually produced in smaller numbers than the general edition and tend to be more valuable than the prints of a signed and numbered limited edition. The print measures approximately 10 1/2" x 15 1/2". It is in good condition with clean margins and will mat and frame nicely. A photocopy of the biographical text will accompany the print. 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.
