"Si "La Nouvelle Héloïse" a su toucher les lecteurs, ce n'est pas seulement grâce à la prose de Rousseau ou à son art de mettre en circulation de manière originale des propositions philosophiques inédites. Cela a tenu aussi à une conception nouvelle du livre, qui a vu les "Lettres" de deux amants paraître escortées d'une préface dite dialoguée et surtout d'un recueil de planches réalisées d'après les sujets fournis par Rousseau et élaborées par Gravelot, un des maîtres d'illustration rococo. Aux yeux de Rousseau, ces planches étaient indispensables pour susciter des effets de lecture soigneusement concertés. L'édition classique de René Pomeau, la seule à fournir au lecteur d'aujourd'hui l'ensemble des éléments du dossier imaginé par Rousseau, est donc aussi la seule à lui permettre de saisir les intentions du romancier. Elle est ici accompagnée d'une bibliographie renouvelée de Jacques Berchtold et Yannick Séité."--P. [4] of cover
