Found this Nightingale (The Journal of the Data Visualization Society) post: The Hungarian Statistician Behind Three Volumes of Visualization Masterpieces

It is about the work of Hungarian statistician Lajos Illyefalvi (1881–1944).

About one of the titles ‘Past and Present’:

Past and Present wasn’t inventive, wasn’t progressive, and wasn’t original, but used a wide range of chart types professionally and perfectly. Some of the dashboard-like pages are really beautiful, and few graphic types were introduced first in these volumes for the Hungarian public.

Look at these examples from the post:
