Many of his important contributions in these fields have been long out-of-print and are extremely difficult to obtain, having been issued in very small editions. Most of Taylors translations have an archaic elegance which preserves the spirit of the older authors in a manner not evident in more recent translations.

Taylor also added notes and commentaries which give valuable insight into the essential meaning often obscure in the actual text. Contents include: Collection of the Chaldean Oracles (1817)- A Dissertation on the Eleusinian and Bacchic Mysteries (1790)- A History of the Restoration of the Platonic Theology (1788)- and Platonic Demonstration of the Immortality of the Soul (1820).
