Vanity Fair

By William Thackeray

Vanity Fair follows the lives of Becky Sharp and Amelia Sedley amid their friends and families during and after the Napoleonic Wars. The two women are ostensibly friends, who are always in opposition to one another: when Amelia falls into a crisis, Becky is moving in the highest circles of society. When Amelia comes into luck, Becky's fortunes plummet. Throughout the novel, Amelia yearns for love, while Becky fights her way up the social ladder.

This edition is limited to 1,000 copies.

The Author

William Thackeray

William Makepeace Thackeray (18 July 1811 – 24 December 1863) was an English novelist of the 19th century. Thackeray achieved recognition with his Snob Papers, but the work that really established his fame was the novel Vanity Fair, which first appeared in serialised instalments beginning in January 1847. Even before Vanity Fair completed its serial run Thackeray had become a celebrity, sought after by the very lords and ladies whom he satirised. They hailed him as the equal of Dickens.
