Puzony koniunkturalne. O obwolucie pierwszego wydania Sklepów cynamonowych

Piotr Sitkiewicz


The price of first editions of Schulz’s two collections of stories published in his lifetime is likely to vary depending on whether the original cover and especially the book jacket, which is a bibliophile’s rarity, are preserved. The book jacket of Cinnamon Shops has never been reproduced. Moreover, nobody has ever published the text that appeared on its flap. Probably not written by Schulz himself, it presents such features of his stories as the deformation of the described reality or the unusual plasticity of words. In their reviews written before the war, critics unanimously stated that Schulz was a product of self-promotion, which was characterized by excessive self-complacency and an element of a too intensive advertising campaign that was supposed to promote an unknown author. It appears, however, that the advertising campaign of Schulz’s debut was not at all vigorous, quite the contrary – the author himself paved the road to fame, overcoming the considerable opposition of critics.
