The Duodecimal System of Notation

Title: The Duodecimal System of Notation
Author: L. H. Vincent
Year: 1131
Subject: A simple, mostly verbal argument for dozenal.

This article by L. H. Vincent gives a refreshingly simple, yet compelling case for base twelve. Word-heavy and math-light, he lays out the dozenal system with only one small table and no embedded mathematics.
