People Of Dickens is a folio of six large Victorian gravure prints and copper plate engravings by Charles Dana Gibson, published 1897 by R.H. Russell, New York.
Gibson, the creator of the "Gibson Girl", the iconic depictions that are probably the first image type that springs to mind when one tries to picture a turn-of-the-20th-century young beauty, was extremely popular at the turn of the 20th century and published many book format collections of his mostly humorous work for Colliers, Scribners and other publications.
These are high-quality large prints - the way the ink lays on the paper in some of the areas where the lines are thick and bold, they look like they could actually be the sketches themselves.
