Summary

This charming book, first published in 1912, retells portions of books by Charles Dickens, featuring the memorable child characters such as David Copperfield, Oliver Twist, and the Jellyby family. It includes background information on the novels, and ten full-color, full-page illustrations by the inimitable Jessie Willcox Smith.

Dickens’s Children is a collection of 10 illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith, featuring the younger characters from the novels of Charles Dickens. The work was commissioned by Scribner’s in 1911; eight of the drawings subsequently printed in their magazine, and the book published in 1912. The original Jessie Willcox Smith art is described as ‘mixed media’ and looks to be watercolor with oil (the snow) and pastel.
