An overview of the illustrations to Dickens (with an appendix on the "cheap editions"). If there's another book on this topic I couldn't find it though there's likely journal articles. Kitton was an illustrator himself, serving on The Graphic staff for many years. He became interested in Dickens and compiled many books about him.
