He wrote several scientific papers with Joicey.During the First World War he worked with Authur Bacot at the Lister Institute on trench fever and typhus diseases carried by lice. After Joicey's death in 1932 he worked for the British Pest Infestation Division of the Ministry of Health.

George Talbot wrote over 150 papers many of them generic revisions in the "Bulletin of the Hill Museum" and his Fauna of British India volumes. His best known works are his monograph on "Delias" and the three Pieridae parts of "Lepidopterum Catalogus" published by Wilhelm Junk.
