*Advanced Theory of Statistics*: (1969) Vol. 1*Distribution Theory*; (1973) Vol. 2*Inference and Relationship*; (1976) Vol. 3*Design and Analysis, and Time-Series*, Charles Griffin, London. A massive piece of scholarship; heavy going, but many worked examples. - Siegel, S., 1956.
*Nonparametric Statistics for the Behavioural Sciences*, McGraw Hill Kogakusha, Tokyo. Elementary in the extreme; a mine of information on non-parametric methods. No theory or justification at all, but many references to the original papers. Everything illustrated by thoroughly worked examples. -
*The Fontana Dictionary of Modern Thought 1976*, Eds Bullock, A. & Stallybrass, O., Fontana Books, London. Filled with interesting things, most of which have nothing to do with (and are far more fascinating than) statistics. - Martin, B.R.,
1971.
*Statistics for Physicists*, Academic Press, London. Very concise, readable and fairly rigorous; a number of worked examples. - Jauncey, D.L.,
1968.
*Astrophys. J.*, 152, 647. - Davenport, W.B. & Root, W.L.,
1958.
*An Introduction to the Theory of Random Signals and Noise*, McGraw-Hill, New York. - Schwartz, M. & Shaw, L.,
1975.
*Signal Processing: Discrete Spectral Analysis, Detection, and Estimation*, McGraw-Hill, New York. Both these works contain much information on statistical/information/sampling theory, autocorrelation, physics of noise, etc. - Martin, M.A.,
1959.
*IRE Trans. Space Electron. Telem. SET*-5, p. 33. - Bevington, P.R.,
1969.
*Data Reduction and Error Analysis for the Physical Sciences*, McGraw-Hill, New York. An extremely useful book, elementary, very readable, with straightforward (but non-rigorous) justifications and explanations, many worked and many relevant computer subroutines (FORTRAN). - Wall, J.V., 1973.
