Vanity is a bright and breezy no-nonsense rag in AABBCCA form with a 4-bar introduction which fairly bowls along. Pratt dedicated this piece to his friend Paul H. McGauly.
How this composition became to be so titled is a bit of a conundrum to the editor as there appears to be no obvious connection between the title and the music itself or with the modest charmer shown on the cover of the original sheet music.
Vanity was published by J.H. Aufderheide & Co., Indianapolis, Indiana, USA.
A tempo of 76 crotchets/min. is suggested.
