In literary-theoretical circles Grigor Vitez (1911-1966) is primarily known and recognized as a great poet for children and a pioneer of contemporary Croatian children's poetry in which he inaugurated increasingly important phenomena that characterize the genre today. Complete Vitez's professional activity so far has been insufficiently considered and researched, so his extensive editorial work on a number of publishing series for children and youth stayed outside serious reception. From 1951 until the end of his life (1966) Vitez was employed in the Novo pokoljenje publishing company, which was shortly after his employment renamed in Mladost, where he was the editor in chief for children's and youth editions. In fifteen years of his editorial work he launched and systematically edited thirteen publishing series for children and adolescents, which has been an unknown fact so far. This undoubtedly indicated that Vitez had a major role as an editor in the development of the Croatian, and at that time the Yugoslav children's literature. The aim of this paper was to determine for the first time the exact number, names and the bibliography of all publishing series of which Vitez was the initiator, the founder and/or editor and to present for the first time their editorial profile through technical and poetic analysis and statistical processing of titles.
