'Alice in Wonderland' 150th Anniversary: See Lewis Carroll's Original Manuscript

Today marks the book's 150th anniversary.

Carroll, whose real name was actually Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, wrote the book in 1865. The story has stood the test of time -- the young girl falling down the rabbit hole into a new world, where her adventures include tea with the Mad Hatter and her interactions with the Queen of Hearts.

To commemorate this important day, The British Library tweeted stunning images of Carroll's original manuscript. The manuscript is on display at the museum, but you don't need to travel to England to see it.

Here are some of the pictures:

The museum explains that "Charles Dodgson was a mathematics tutor at Christ Church, Oxford in 1856 when he first met Alice Liddell and her siblings, who were the children of the Dean of the college."

It was this friendship with Alice and the other kids that inspired the book.
