J. H. Brumfitt, French Studies 21.1 (1967): "This is one of the key works of Voltaire and the need for a good edition of it has long been felt. We should be grateful to Dr Taylor for at last providing us with one. […] A most perceptive and thorough piece of work. Indeed, some of the minor criticisms one may make of it result precisely from its thoroughness. […] As far as La Henriade itself is concerned, there are very few [non-peripheral questions] to which this scholarly edition does not contain the answer."
