The collection presented to the Archive of the Griffith Institute consists of some 500 sketches, watercolours, tracings, etc. They date to various periods of Bonomi's career and include Egyptian as well as Classical, 19th-century Egyptian and other subjects (including Palestine). The Egyptian material contains general views of monuments, such as Trajan's kiosk at Philae or the temple-remains at Elephantine, architectural views, and copies of various monuments, e.g. of a fragment of the sarcophagus of King Ay and other objects at Hartwell House.
