Keynes originally published his Essays in Biography in 1933. After his death, Rupert Hart-Davies reprinted the volume, adding, with the help of Sir Geoffrey Keynes (Keynes’s brother), “three of the more important of Keynes’s later writings – the essays on … Jevons and Newton and his charming biography of Mary Marshall” (xv). The editors of the Collected Writings re-published the essays in 1972 as volume X, adding two previously unpublished but extremely important essays: “Melchior: a defeated enemy” and “My early beliefs”.
