Antique Original Vanity Fair Rowing Lithograph Print of Henry Searle , Sept. 7. 1889. Caption reads: " Professional Champion Sculler of the World. "
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 chips to three corners of the print. All will cover when matted and frame nicely. Please see all photos.
