These prints look absolutely superb when framed and are ageless. The edges of these prints are usually worn due to their age which is absolutely normal. Framing will cover any untidy edges.

  1. What exactly is the status of this print? Is it a modern reproduction of the Vanity Fair cartoon, or a page out of Vanity Fair.

    1. Hello there Peter and thanks for your query.
      This print is an original lithograph print, as stated in the title of this listing. We only sell originals. We also trade on http://www.ttandm4h.com where Vanity Fairs sit alongside a couple of other genres which at times are interlinked. The catalogue of Vanity Fairs is an ongoing project as we build the site and we can get hold of any of the caricatures ever produced. The print of Fry is most certainly not a modern reproduction. Are you interested in and a collector of Vanity Fair Caricatures?
      Best regards, Jonathan Godwin
