Vanity Fair

 

Vanity Fair Magazine was founded in 1868 by Thomas Gibson Bowles and ran until 1914. Its original focus was to depict "A Weekly Show of Political, Social, and Literary Wares." (The Antique Collector, 1987) It depicted Victorian and Edwardian personages of achievers in their field of endeavors. Women were included, as well as important individuals around the world. In the beginning most prints could be had for 5 or 10 English pounds; in today's market they can reach

as high as 1,000.
