Dating when going through a divorce - 9 Things You Need To Know About Dating Someone Going.


Dating as an institution is a relatively recent phenomenon which has mainly emerged in the last few centuries. From the standpoint of anthropology and sociology , dating is linked with other institutions such as marriage and the family which have also been changing rapidly and which have been subject to many forces, including advances in technology and medicine. As humans societies have evolved from hunter-gatherers into civilized societies , there have been substantial changes in relations between men and women, with perhaps one of a few remaining biological constants being that both adult women and men must have sexual intercourse for human procreation to happen.

  July 1949 to ? Defining characteristics of sets for this period:

  • Board copyright: 1948
  • *NEW* Rule copyright: 1949
  • *NEW* Box top material: "bumpy" texture.
  • Rectangular SCRABBLE sticker on box top.
  • No trademark registration for SCRABBLE.
  • No mention anywhere of Selchow & Righter.
  • Think of this as the early part of the "1949 Rules/pre-Registered Trademark" period. I use the July 23, 1949, copyright for the rules as the nominal starting point for this period. As always, the copyright notice is given below the rules printed inside the inner lid . There are still only four example plays given at the bottom, but in the 1949 rules, they are referenced from within the rules. (See my page on Scrabble rules through the decades .)

The board in this period is the same as before (showing the same 1948 copyright date) but I show the photo of this one as well because it goes a bit higher and lets you see more clearly the absence of the registered trademark (R) symbol below the E in "SCRABBLE".

    In this early phase, Brunot was still wrestling with the tiles . The tiles shown below are from a set from this period owned by Daniel Brannan. Daniel graciously supplied photos clearly showing the laminated wood (., plywood).
    Early Scrabble tiles, laminated.  
    Another set from this period has solid wood tiles. Artem found it at an estate sale in Santa Cruz, California in latter 2011, and kindly shared his photos with us. Here's a closeup of the tiles - D O N (hey, that's a NOD to me!) Assuming that, once solid wood came into use for the tiles, Brunot never returned to the laminated wood, we would conclude that Artem's set came after Daniel's. The characters are more carefully positioned, and note the more stylish "1".

    Brunot's experimentation with tiles in the early years will make an interesting story in itself.
