Sketches of Young Gentlemen and Young Couples

With Sketches of Young Ladies by Edward Caswall

Charles Dickens
Introduction by Paul Schlicke

  • Showcases two collections of little-known sketches by Charles Dickens, comic portraits of characters distinguished by Dickens's hallmark imaginative genius, and charmingly illustrated by Phiz.
  • Includes Edward Caswall's Sketches of Young Ladies, whose publication prompted Dickens's riposte.
  • A perfect foil to Dickens's major novels, and the perfect keepsake for his bicentenary.
  • Introduced by Dickens scholar Paul Schlicke, who discusses the historical circumstances of the collections' first publication, the popularity of the sketch mode, and the special qualities of these examples.
