Very Good/Excellent: remnant of previous hinging tape at top BACK of print
NOTE: Between the years 1906-1911 Vanity Fair magazine cartoons were printed using the colour offset process.
Thus, the caricatures during these years have a 'dot pattern' under magnification,
unlike the smooth tones of the usual stone lithography generally employed for Vanity Fair's prints.
This print was printed by Hentschel-Colourtype of London in the year 1909.
It is over 105 years old and not a modern reproduction.
