Summary/Abstract: The paper describes the development of the publishing market associated with the literary legacy of Janusz Korczak, since his first self-published book of 1901 to the present time (2011). The analysis includes all self-published printed works released in Poland during this period (also translations into Yiddish published before World War II) and books published abroad in Polish. The article focuses on several aspects related to the published legacy, such as publication of first editions, geographic and institutional reach, periodization and some library science features, for example being a part of a series, the artwork, author’s comments and editions. The varied number of editions of individual titles in the period indicates the changing popularity of certain content, which was due to specific editorial policy at the times of socialism in Poland as well as ideological and social changes affecting the reception of J. Korczak’s works after 1989.
