Of the three stories of which the present volume is composed, Tant mieux pour elle! (All The Better For Her!) was first published in 1760, probably in Liege; Histoire de la Felicite (A Tale of Happiness) was first published in Paris in 1751; and Zulmis et Zelmaide (Zulmis and Zelmaide) was first published in 1745 under the false rubric Amsterdam. So far as can be ascertained, none of these three stories has previously translated into English.
