This essential research work for Voltaire scholars reproduces Voltaire’s own annotations written in the margins of the books in his library, now owned by the National Library of Russia at St Petersburg. The present volume 7 includes Voltaire’s marginal notes on such diverse authors as Pluche, Plutarch, Pope, Pufendorf, Racine and Raynal. Comprehensive editorial notes show how Voltaire’s reading of the books in his library influenced his own writing, and the volume also contains an index of Voltaire’s works referred to in the editorial notes. The volume is further enhanced by the reproduction of some 30 pages from books in the library showing Voltaire’s annotations.

Revue Voltaire

La publication va désormais bon train et gagne en qualité éditoriale. La présence de titres courants, les illustrations situées en regard du texte au lieu d’être reléguées en fin de volume, l’établissement d’un Index nominum et d’un Index des Œuvres de Voltaire offrent au chercheur autant de précieux outils.
