Biographical/Historical Note

Sir Charles Fellows (1799-1860) was an English explorer and archaeologist, best known for his expeditions in Asia Minor, especially in the district of ancient Lycia (in present-day Turkey). During his first journey to this area in 1838, he discovered the ruins of the ancient town of Xanthus. The publication in 1839 of his journal of this expedition aroused great interest, particularly at the British Museum, which requested that he bring artifacts back to England on subsequent voyages. The museum helped arrange a royal decree (firman) from the Sultan to enable Fellows to take away Lycian architectural remnants and sculpture. The firman was obtained in 1842 while Fellows was on his third expedition to the area. At the end of that year he shipped 78 cases from Xanthus to the British Museum. In 1844 he extracted an additional 27 cases of artifacts.
Eventually, Fellows's relationship with the British Museum Trustees changed from one of mutual support to a battle over the design of the display of Xanthian marbles. Fellows argued that the artifacts should be arranged according to archaeological principles, and bitterly criticized the display the sculptor Sir Richard Westmacott produced for the museum.
Fellows published several accounts of his travels and discoveries in Lycia. In his publication, The Xanthian marbles (London: John Murray, 1843) Fellows describes his view of the incidents connected with the acquisition of the marbles, in order to correct mistaken accounts and rumors. His other publications include The Inscribed monument at Xanthus ( 1842), An Account of discoveries in Lycia ( 1841), and his first, A Journal written during an excursion in Asia Minor 1838 , ( 1839).

Scope and Content of Collection

The Charles Fellows correspondence consists of letters, notes, inventories, and cash accounts, dating from 1820-1879, and including undated items. All are handwritten in ink or pencil. A few items are handwritten copies of letters and accounts. Correspondents include people associated with the British Museum, as well as experts and scholars, some of whom accompanied Fellows on his expeditions. Fellows's letters are primarily drafts, many to unidentified correspondents. The bulk of the material dates from 1839-1852. The few items that date after 1859 (1869-1879) appear to be addressed to Lady Fellows. One folder contains signatures torn from letters.
Fellows's letters and notes, several written from Asia Minor, detail his expeditions, the attempt to get permission to ship architectural remnants and sculpture from Xanthus to London, travel arrangements, discussions with other scholars, and arrangements with his creditors. Some letters provide an exchange of information about language and wildlife, especially birds and insects, in Asia Minor. Inventories itemize the sculpture, building fragments and other objects excavated from a site (probably Xanthus), list the workers, tools and equipment.
Letters to and from Fellows, dated after 1842, reflect his dispute with the Trustees of the British Museum over the display of the Xanthus marbles at the museum. He argued for an arrangement based on archaeological principles and against the exhibition design by the sculptor Sir Richard Westmacott. Lists of accounts and letters reflect cash spent on salaries and equipment during his expeditions, as well as London book sales and bookbinding costs of Fellows's several publications, most published by J. Murray. Many letters are from people associated with the British Museum, including Edward Hawkins, Keeper of Antiquities; J. Forshall, Secretary of the Trustees; and William Hamilton. Other correspondents include the photographer William Henry Fox Talbot, the architect Robert Hesketh, who accompanied Fellows to Xanthus, the Austrian orientalist Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall, the topographer William Martin Leake, and the English naturalist Edward Forbes.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged in one series, organized by date, with undated items at the end.
