Most widely held works by Karl Pearson
The grammar of science by Karl Pearson( Book )
106 editions published between 1892 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The author notes that this book is primarily intended as a criticism of the fundamental concepts of modern science. At the same time, the author contends that he is so fully conscious of the ease of criticism and the difficulty of reconstruction, that he has attempted not to stop short at the lighter task. Moreover, the author states that he does not holds the labor of the great scientists or the mission of modern science to be of small account. If the reader finds the opinions of physicists of worldwide reputation, and the current definitions of physical concepts called into question, he must not attribute this to a purely skeptical spirit in the author. He accepts almost without reserve the great results of modern physics; it is the language in which these results are stated that he believes needs reconsideration"--Preface.

Francis Galton, 1822-1922 a centenary appreciation by Karl Pearson( )
17 editions published in 1922 in English and Undetermined and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The year which forms the centenary of Francis Galton's birth demands more recognition of the part he has played in the spread of human knowledge and in its application to the future of the human race than appears thus far likely to be forthcoming. Galton was a mathematician, anthropologist, eugenicist, explorer, inventor, meteorologist, geneticist, psychological measurement pioneer, and statistician. If the present paper should contribute even but a small amount to the fuller recognition which one day will be paid to Galton, it will more than have fulfilled its writer's aims. For he realises that the time is hardly suited to impressing on the majority of men a conviction of the futility of most of their aims, of the depths of their ignorance of what makes for progress, and of the unsatisfying nature of their present pleasures. We can scarcely believe that the bicentenary of Galton's birth will find the world so little in the frame of mind to appreciate his work or so little able to judge clearly the efficacy of his proposals for raising the standard of human fitness"--Book.
