Alice meets Humpty Dumpty

Sir John Tenniel

Wood-engraving by Dalziel

Illustration for the sixth chapter of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass (1871)

"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall:
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses and all the
      King's men
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty in
      his place again."
