Between 1863 and 1913, the Warsaw- based publishing house of Gebethner & Wolff issued six collected editions of Chopin's works. Unparalleled in European musik editing, this body of sources invites a historical and aesthetic enquiry. Based on a detailed analysis of the musical text of six editions dated 1863, 1873, 1880, 1882, 1902, and 1913, which focus on pitch, rhythm, dynamics and fingering, the author traces a stemmatic filiation, showing that only two - 1863 and 1873 - were newly engravwed independent editions, while the widely popular edition by Jan Kleczynski (1882), hitherto consideded an independent version, is in fact a reprint of the 1873 edition with minor changes. By looking at the range and character of editorial interventions, the author addresses issues of editorial technique, axiology and ideology. The latter is discussed in the context of Kleczynski's writings on music and the nineteenth-century French and German editions of Chopin's work (Mikuli, Klindworth).
