Excerpt from The Works of Heinrich Heine, Vol. 8 This book contains a series of Letters which I wrote from 1840 to 1843 for the Augsburger Zitung. For important reasons, I had them published some months ago by Messrs. Hoffmann and Campe as a special book under the title Lutetia, and for reasons t less important I am determined to give them to the public in French. The causes and reasons are as follows. As the Letters in question to the Augsburger Zeitung appeared anymously, and had undergone many omissions and alterations, I had reason to apprehend that they might be published after my death in this mangled form, and perhaps mingled with other letters t by me at all.
