Lord Elgin and the Marbles

William St. Clair

Oxford University Press

The year 1815 marked not just the year of Waterloo for Lord Elgin, as his negotiations and careful planning appeared to be paying off. His campaign for establishing artistic excellence attributed to his collection of marbles was going through several advances as the Payne Knight perspective was now on the defensive. The republication of the Memorandum restored the balance against his enemies' attacks. However, his enemies were able to fight back as Reverend R. Tweddell's Remains came out and it contained several accusations against the Earl of Elgin. It was alleged here that Lord Elgin took advantage of his involvement as Ambassador at Constantinople in order to steal a sizeable collection of journals and drawings that belonged to someone named John Tweddell.
