Very rare!

In April 1922, the Guardian began publishing the Reconstruction in Europe, a series of 12 monthly supplements discussing the economic and financial problems of rebuilding the continent. Edited by John Maynard Keynes, contributors included leading continental economists, politicians and Nobel laureates (there were more foreign writers than British), as well as 13 pieces by Keynes himself.

There were also numerous illustrations, maps and graphs. The series had a wide readership, being published simultaneously in English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
CP Scott, Guardian editor, persuaded Keynes take on the project in 1921, after an assurance was given the he could, ‘really exercise pretty detailed supervision over the writers.’ The main areas covered included finance, industry, trade and labour, with some issues specialising in topics such as shipping or oil. The supplements were the main vehicle for Keynes’ views at the time, as well as the first full account of the theory he later summarised in A Tract on Monetary Reform. In advance of the first issue he wrote about the Genoa conference (34 nations trying to resolve issues in Europe), which he attended as the Guardian’s special correspondent. Detailed preparation of the series fell to AP Wadsworth, who later became editor of the paper.

"During 1922 the great Manchester Guardian Supplements, twelve in number, were the main vehicle for the expression of Keynes's views. They were entitled Reconstruction in Europe and covered the whole field of finance, industry, trade and labour. Some of the issues were general, some specialised on some such topic as shipping or oil. To almost all Keynes contributed an introductory article, which summarised the subject and usually had some interesting ideas In the first issue there was a lengthy article on 'The Theory of purchasing power parity' and another one on 'Forward Exchanges,' which give a full account of the theory, which he subsequently summarised in his Tract on Monetary Reform" (Harrod).
