    The Statistical Breviary: Shewing the Resources of Every State and Kingdom in Europe. 'William Playfair's Commercial and Political Atlas and his Statistical Breviary are among the most important works in the entire history of statistical graphics and data visualization. Here we find the origin of the modern graphical forms most widely used today - the pie chart, line graph and bar chart - and Playfair used these with great skill.

    In addition to the Atlas, they also include Playfair’s The Statistical Breviary; shewing, on a Principle Entirely New, the Resources of Every State and Kingdom in Europe; Illustrated with Stained Copper-plate Charts, Representing the Physical Powers of each distinct Nation with Ease and Perspicuity. Playfair’s circle chart showing the extent of population and revenues in Europe’s principle nations (plate 2 of the Inquiry and plate 1 of the Statistical Breviary), for example, translates irregularly shaped landmasses into uniformly scaled circles whose representations of areas are then further divided into wedges or pies. (See Fig. 4.).

'William Playfair's Commercial and Political Atlas and his Statistical Breviary are among the most important works in the entire history of statistical graphics and data visualization. Here we find the origin of the modern graphical forms most widely used today - the pie chart, line graph and bar chart - and Playfair used these with great skill to make his (largely economic) data 'speak to the eyes'.
