Lewis Carroll’s original handwritten, illustrated manuscript for “Alice in Wonderland” will travel to the U.S. to mark its 150th anniversary.

The British Library said Thursday it will loan the book — presented by the author to Alice Liddell, who inspired it — to New York’s Morgan Library and Museum and the Rosenbach Museum of the Free Library of Philadelphia next year.

The work, which bears its original title of “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground,” was bought by an American dealer in 1928 and returned to Britain in 1948.

The British Library also will display the book in late 2015 as part of an exhibition marking 150 years since its 1865 publication.
