Answer:

The entire book is written in the form of letter correspondence. The Preface sets that stage.

Explanation:

The explanation of similar literature and the genesis of some of his concepts in the "Letters" also makes it more of an introduction to a factual observation than a fictional story. His links to his personal experiences and accounts of others also lends an air of "truth" to the subsequent tale.
