Flowing Data writes, "Willard Cope Brinton is credited as one of the pioneers of information visualization, and I just found out his 1939 book Graphic Presentation is available in its entirety at the Internet Archive. You can download it in various formats. The book was an update to his previous book from 25 years prior, Graphic Methods for Presenting Facts. It’s also at the Archive." It's also interesting to note that not long after these dates we say the first graphical fallacies, detailed with care by Darrell Huff (73 page PDF). I cut my teeth on this work back in the 1980s.
