Abstract

Edgeworth's major early work in statistics is reviewed in the context of the history of statistics in the nineteenth century. Edgeworth's intellectual development before 1890 is discussed, and his style of writing and its effect upon the spread of his ideas is considered. Special attention is given to Edgeworth's methodology for the comparison of means and his early efforts to test goodness of fit, and an 1885 anticipation of an analysis of variance for two-way classifications is discussed at length.
