Description: 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.Volume 8 includes Voltaire’s copious marginal notes on Jean-Jacques Rousseau, which benefit here from extensive critical annotation by Nathalie Ferrand, with the participation of Larissa Albina. The material on Rousseau is complemented by reproductions in an appendix of annotations by Voltaire on a second copy of Emile.

Voltaire’s readings of other important authors in this volume include Charles Rollin, Jean-Baptiste Rousseau, Saint-Evremond, Paolo Sarpi, Mlle de Scudéry, Mlle de Sévigné, Shakespeare and Richard Simon. 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 26 reproductions of Voltaire’s annotations.
