In some instances enough photographs have been assembled to make up a complete collection, for example the Demidoff Collection which was broken up at the end of the last century, the Chigi-Saracini Collection, which also no longer exists, and other minor collections. One of the last sections of the collection comprises landscapes and Italian cities photographed in the second half of the nineteenth century.
The collection includes works on dance history and aesthetics, dance methods and dance music in printed and manuscript form. Dance forms include French and Italian renaissance dance (before 1630), the English country dance, the baroque dance (after 1630) and the contredance (before 1820).
540 scores (with some vocal scores) of 520 primarily French operas: 220 works by eighteenth century composers (1760-1800) and 300 works by nineteenth century composers (1800-1870) from the Théâtre Français de La Haye.

The Kern Collection reflects the particular research interests of three generations of archaeologists working in Indonesia and developed from the photographic documentation prepared by the Archaeological Commission of the Netherlands East Indies at the beginning of the century. Over the years, more were added, some as illustrations for and supplements to the inventory of Archaeological Monuments, others in connection with the restoration of some of these monuments.
