Dickens' character sketches
Several sets of magic lantern slides depicting Dickens' characters have been published and it is difficult to determine to which set the slides below belong.
Quite a few of these slides are labelled 'J Cooper Sands' or with the initials 'J.C.S.'. This J.C. Sands was one who gave several lectures on Dickens and was the author of a dramatized version of the 'Pickwick Papers', 'The Pickwickians', a three-act play with clues as to the setting of the stage, etc. He could have used these slides for this purpose. A copy of the book is kept in the university library in Tilburg, the Netherlands.
|Mr Pickwick enjoying cold punch||Alfred Jingle||Bill Sikes|
|Captain Cuttle||Codlin||The Game Chicken|
|The fat boy||Job Trotter||Major Bagstock|
|Mark Tapley||Mr Micawber||Dick Swiveller & the Marchioness|
|Sam Weller||Sarah Gamp||Tony Weller|
|Bob Sawyer||Mr Micawber & David||Mrs Jarley|
