Notes on the wooden sarcophagus and two coffins of Ir, Dyn. XXVI, from Thebes, formerly in H. Salt, J. Lee and Lord Amherst collections and at Sotheby's in 1921, current location not known (TopBib i2.835): -ink text on paper -loose -20.6 x 33.2 cm -[text]: 'Harwell House October 21 1850 The great Sarcophagus in the Chapel The Goddess Neith N(crossed out) Neith [X1*W24:N1] who is depicted in full length on the inside of the upper half of the third coffin is compounded of the hieroglyphic [V39] in the same manner as the god [Q1\:D4\:A40], likewise depicted full length, is corresponded of the hieroglyphic [R11]. In Sarcophagi from the necropolis of Thebes it is usual to find the same Goddess in the likeness of a beautiful woman, usually(crossed out), with her arms streached over the deceased as the heavens streached(d - crossed out) over the earth. That she represents the heavens the determinative of her name [N1] is a voucher, and her figure [C199] in this position over astronomi cal signs. But if other proof were wanting there is a stone sarcophagus in the British Museum where she is sculptured streached out, as the heavens over the earth, and giving birth to the Planets. In the lower half of Sarcophagi from Thebes it is usual to find an other Goddess female figure and not the figure of a man or one(crossed out) man or god in the likeness of a man or compounded of the [R11] as in the Hartwell Coffin; and this goddess [X1\:H8-Q1] is the goddess of the earth. as might be naturally suppose(?) This(crossed out) Figure(crossed out) She extends her arms up each side of the coffin as if embracing the deceased or receiving the deceased into her bosom That the stone Sacrophagus here quoted came from Thebes I my self can assert being present where the officers of the Luxor brought it out of the pit Whence then is the great Sarcophagus in the Chapel of Hartwell house? The answer is, most probably from(crossed out) Lower Egypt(crossed out). Most probably from the great necropolis of Lower Egypt there namely the Necropolis(crossed out) desert of Sakkara of Memphis. First because Pthah of(crossed out) to whom(underlined) the sign R11 is peculiar(underlined) had a celebrated Temple at in the city of Memphis and secondly because the hierogly phics are of the form or style of writing peculiar to this region of Egypt and thirdly because the form of the outer case is of the ancient(crossed out) form [Q6] most usual from in this nearby(?) the most ancient times to the most recent in that district of Egypt (See ancient inscription in the same collection)'

Diary kept from 4 May 1922 to 20 October 1926 by the wife of the British archaeologist and photographer Harry Burton (1879-1940). The diary contains detailed daily entries recording social engagements and memorable events, including the excavation of the tomb of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter’s team, of which her husband was a member. The diary details her life and travels with her husband at home in Florence, their stays in Egypt (especially Luxor, but also Cairo), the trip they made across the US and to Hollywood in 1924, and various holidays in Europe (London, Salzburg, St. Moritz, etc.), as well as trips to friends in Italy.

Album of watercolours, drawings, and tracings of Egypt produced close to the end of Lloyd's life. It is a folio volume (33 x 44 cm, pages 32.7 x 43 cm), containing 135 watercolours and drawings (74 of which are full-page and 1 folding) and 10 tracings (8 folding). They are all mounted and most are captioned either on the image itself or on the mount. Captions on the mount seem to have been added when the album was put together after Lloyd's death. The album also contains a loose watercolour, a loose drawing and a loose lithographed portrait of George Lloyd by Prisse d'Avennes, who published it in his Oriental Album: Characters, Costumes and Modes of Life in the Valley of the Nile (1848). One of the drawings in the album is a pencil portrait of Lloyd sketched by Prince A. Soltykoff.
