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.
