Between 1868-1914 Vanity Fair was a completely different magazine than the one we know today, emblazoned with Hollywood celebrities and pop stars. Don't get us wrong, we LOVE the current Vanity Fair, but the magazine published during the Victorian and Edwardian times had a different schtick. Perhaps the most lasting part of the magazine's legacy are the prints, often called "Spy prints", which depict notable people of the age as caricatures. It became something of an it-factor to appear as a caricature in Vanity Fair.
This one is named "The Criminal Code", and is a portrait of Sir James F Stephen, from March 1885.
