)
26 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and Italian and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
R.A. Fisher has had more influence on the development of statistical theory and practice than any other twentiethcentury statistician. His writings (both in paper and book form) have proved to be as relevant to presentday statisticians as they were when first published. This book brings together as a single volume three of Fisher's most influential textbooks: Statistical Methods for Research Workers, The Design of Experiments, and Statistical Methods and Scientific Inference . In this new edition Frank Yates has provided a foreword which sheds fresh light on Fisher's thinking and on the writing and reception of each of the books. He discusses some of the key issues tackled in the three books and reflects on how the ideas expressed have come to permeate modern statistical practice

Experiments in plant hybridisation by
Gregor Mendel(
Book
)
3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most influential and important scientific works ever written, the 1865 paper "Experiments in Plant Hybridisation" was all but ignored in its day, and its author, Austrian priest and scientist Gregor Johann Mendel (18221884), died before seeing the dramatic longterm impact of his work, which was rediscovered at the turn of the 20th century and is now considered foundational to modern genetics. A simple, eloquent description of his 18561863 study of the inheritance of traits in pea plantsMendel analyzed 29,000 of themthis is essential reading for biology students and readers of science history. Cosimo presents this compact edition from the 1909 translation by British geneticist William Bateson (18611926)  Back cover
