Vanity Fair Musicians

This is a selection of individuals from the Music Category of the Vanity Fair Weekly Periodical that ran from 1869 to 1914. It was originally edited by Thomas Gibson Bowles and the lithograph prints are an ever present popular genre commonly known as Spy prints.

Spy was the pseudonym of the artists Leslie Ward who was the most prolific of the artists closely followed in output by Carlo Pellegrini under the pseudonym Ape.

We. at Theakston-Thomas, have a substantial stock holding of these prints and we are confident that we can acquire any of the complete catalogue through contacts with others major collectors who enjoy this genre. We are also confident that we will be the most cost effective UK based supplier.
