It isn't the Collection that is inedite ...I believe that what they meant is that it's a "Collection" that contains "des ecrits inedits"  ...  that is "Des Inedits" ... which got itself shortened for the purpose of the series title to be  Collection Inedits

As a French speaker it strikes me as "strange" to have  a noun : Collection which is feminine singular next to an adjective : Inédits which is masculine plural. This breaks a fundamental grammatical rule of adjective/noun agreement that you will find in all Romance languages.
That is why the capitalized Inédits is treated like a proper name. 
I apologize for giving a linguist's opinion on a cataloging forum.

I question whether the word “Inedits” in the series title below should be upper case. It does not appear to be a proper name, etc. The record is pre-RDA.
