As you know, the DSA has embarked on archiving copies of all its literature in pdf format for their website. I had done a couple of our magazines, but Michael De Vlieger of the DSA offered to do our magazines as well as theirs, an offer I very gratefully accepted!

The first set, our Duodecimal Newscasts of many years ago, are now on our DSGB website for you to download.

I have just added a pdf copy of Dozenal Journal number 8 to the archive section on the DSGB website. This was issued when Don Hammond was the Secretary.

Journals ten and eleven are already there. More to come.

Shaun,

I have a new scanner and the Journals you sent. Maybe we could divide and conquer. These days I am more harried.

I have one full archive set of everything and a number of spare copies of some.

I'm scanning the spares, since they can be de-stapled and scanned flat. I went through all the spares that came from Arthur Whillock and there wasn't a complete second set. So you have one full set and I the other.

I'll email you a list of the ones I am doing - I don't want to have to de-staple any of the archive copies for scanning unless I have to - perhaps you could help with those.

TGM booklet updated to most recent version (5th, revised today, *24 Sept).

Found a few errors in the 4th edition; there may well be more - please let me know if you find any.
TGM booklet

Also added Dozenal Review *31.

Scanned in from a rather dilapidated copy, this looks a bit tatty, but is legible.
it contains Tom Pendlebury's notes on how to use his sliderule (for which a do-it-yourself set of scales was included) and more of his "Get with it" pages on using dozenal.

I may retype the text later and do a new pdf. Comments welcome...
(I just hope someone out there is reading these archive issues!)

Dozenal Journal 1 added to archives.
This was the first magazine produced with Donald Hammond as the new Secretary of the DSGB (taking over from me).

The Dozenal Journal was intended to be a joint DSA/DSGB magazine, replacing both the DSGB Dozenal Review and the DSA Duodecimal Buletin, as had been discussed by Arthur Whillock when he visited the DSA. The agreement however did not last and the DSA decided to continue issuing their Bulletin.

The DSGB does not have a magazine at the moment; everything is under review at the moment and I will report here if there are any new developments.

Journal number one contains some reprints from both the Bulletin and the Review. In particular it includes a fully revised complete version of Tom Pendlebury's "Music la Doz" which had previously been serialised in the Review.

I would be interested to know if anyone here has looked at the archived issues.

Not sure how many will see your note. I've looked at the archive but not a whole lot if it, because I have many issues of the various publications on paper. Nonetheless, it may be more convenient for me now to look at digitized versions. Thank you for posting them.

Yes, they are a welcome addition of course. I've started to look through some of them, and will eventually read through them all. It's good to have such a reference to history electronically at our fingertips. By all means, if you have more, put them up!

I have read all of the publications of DSGB that I am aware of at some point. These have valuable writings concerning metrology and metrication, numeral proposals, basic properties of dozenal and implementation ideas, and the doings of folks in the UK regarding base twelve.

Highly recommended reading, now open to all. The DSA ought to point to this content from the Duodecimal Bulletin and Publications section. The total mass of material produced by DSGB is about a third of the mass of the Duodecimal Bulletin (in terms of pages, so not completely apples to apples), and "fills in" during the great hiatus of the Bulletin during the seventies.

I've been working my way through the old stuff. Quite a lot of repeated articles, some bits republished here.
Nothing new recently, though - are no DSGB members writing anything new? Are there any living members left?
And this Dozens Forum seems to be attracting a few rather strange customers with very odd beliefs!

To paraphrase Morpheus in The Matrix Reloaded, 'We're here because we have an affinity for odd beliefs'. Some of us are quirkier than others, but dozenalism itself is a quirky endeavour, so that's how it goes.

Odd how the stuff about metric and decimal coinage seems so old now.
Still intteresting, though.

It was a very different world, back in the days of proper mental arithmetic and real money!

DSGB magazines available to download - can be found at:

DSGB archives

Just repeating the reference, as I have now added Duodecimal Review *22 (issued in d1969).

This was the first restyled DSGB magazine, and one of the more important ones.
It contains Tom Pendlebury's summary of known Dozenal Metric Systems and what is required of them.

By the time he wrote this he must have read the DSA Bulletin which contains Wm Crosby's letter, and Crosby is mentioned in Tom's article.

There are articles by J. Halcro Johnston and myself, and Tom's "Get With It" and "Do you Know" sections. A cumulative index of Duodecimal Newscasts and the Review is also included.

Dozenal Review *2E (Spring *1189/1977) now on site and ready for download.
It includes more work and comments about metrology by Tom Pendlebury and also quotes from Australian sources and the Australian Anti-Metric Assn.
I hope it will prove an interesting read for you all.

A complete set of our Dozenal Journals is now available for download.

Journal 4 has Arthur Whillock's review of Tom Pendlebury's TGM and some of Don Hammond's gems.

The Journal was edited by Don Hammond until his death; going through them as I scanned their contents I found many fascinating articles which I had forgotten.

Comments on any of these would be very welcome!

I'll now get busy on those issues of the Dozenal Review *which preceded the Dozenal Journal) which have not yet been scanned and uploaded.
