Alice tips over the jury-box

Alice tips over the jury-box, an illustration by JVL in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Artists' Choice Editions, 2009.

The text at the beginning of the last chapter: 
  `Here!' cried Alice, quite forgetting in the flurry of the
moment how large she had grown in the last few minutes, and she
jumped up in such a hurry that she tipped over the jury-box with
the edge of her skirt, upsetting all the jurymen on to the heads
of the crowd below, and there they lay sprawling about, reminding
her very much of a globe of goldfish she had accidentally upset
the week before.
