"Tirah": General Sir William Stephen Alexander Lockhart (Men of the Day no. 725) -- Vanity Fair, Sept. 8, 1898

Utrecht: P.W. van de Weywer, 1898. 1 color print 39 x 26 cm. signed "Spy," with accompanying leaf of descriptive text. Sir Leslie Ward (1851-1922), English caricaturist and portrait painter, signed his works 'Spy.' William Stephen Alexander Lockhart (1841-1900) was a British general who spent most of his career in India and Burma. In 1897 he had conducted the Tirah Expedition. Because Vincent Brooks, Day & Son, the lithographer usually employed by Vanity Fair, suffered a fire in 1898, this is one of the prints in their popular series Men of the Day printed by P.W. van de Weyer in Utrecht, Holland. They used the "colortype" offset printing method rather than the color lithography seen in many other Vanity Fair prints. In Near Fine- Condition: 1-cm. closed tear from left edge of print; minimal soiling in margins; clean and bright image and text. Near Fine -. Item #004927
