Graphic methods for presenting facts
The Engineering magazine company, 1914
“Graphic methods for presenting facts” is an impressive, early survey of what would today be considered to be bare-bones statistical diagrams and graphic techniques that existed at that moment. Now scarce in original form, this early volume is recognized as the first American book focused on graphic techniques geared for a general audience.
