vanity fair magazine

Vanity Fair has been the title of at least five magazines, including an 1859–1863 American publication, an 1868–1914 English publication, and an unrelated 1902-1904 New York magazine, a 1913–1936 American publication edited by Condé Nast, which was revived in 1983.

Vanity Fair was notably a fictitious place ruled by Beelzebub, in the book Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan. Later use of the name was influenced by the well-known 1847-1848 novel of the same name by William Makepeace Thackeray.
