Title: Dress & Vanity Fair
Category: Fashion
Volume: 1
Issue: 1-4
Date: September – December 1913
Published in: New York, NY
An important highbrow journal of society and fashion published by Conde Nast. It is specially collected for its Art Deco covers. The history of the American title “Vanity Fair” is convoluted and interesting. The humor magazine (675), which is the first use of the title, ran from 1859 -1863. The Vanity Fair immediately preceding Dress and Vanity Fair is a combination of Vanity Fair (Jl 1896 – Ja 1902), whose first issue had the unusual title Vanity Fair and Standard Quarterly No. 6 (1063), which merged with Saturday Standard to form Vanity Fair and the Saturday Standard (Ap 19 – My 3 1902) later Standard and Dress and Vanity Fair which restarted as volume 1, technically, a new series. 45 volumes are consecutively numbered from 1889, beginning as Sports, Music and Drama (1889 – 1892) later Music and Drama (Ja 7 – D 16 1893), then Standard (Je 30 1894 – D 18 1901), Saturday Standard (D 21 1901 – Ap 12 1902) then merging as above.
