1 Llewellyn, Karl ; et al. Harvard Law Revue ( April 28, 1934 ) [A Satirical Lampoon of the Harvard Law Review] Equitabillegal Translation by Karl Llewellyn
Cambridge Harvard Law Review 1934 First Edition Paperback Very Good 
Former owner's name on front wrapper (J.F. Dooling, Jr), otherwise clean and tight in original light olive printed wrappers. John Francis Dooling, Jr. (1908 - 1981) was a federal judge for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York. Dooling received an LL.B. from Harvard Law School in 1934. He was nominated to the court by John F. Kennedy in 1961 and served until his death. (See OCLC: 64162774) Traditionally, every year a couple of the editors of the prestigious Harvard Law Review write a parody of that journal under the title "Harvard Law Revue" which is distributed at their annual banquet. This publication mimics the format of the Review while satirizing the editors, authors and articles of the preceding year. In recent year's the Revue has been published on April Fools' Day. When Barack Obama was editor of the Review, he was impersonated in the 1990 Revue saying "in Chicago I discovered I was black, and I have remained so ever since. The issue of the Revue offerred for sale here is of a much older vintage. This issue of April 28, 1934 (Volume V, Number 1) includes the following: Equitabillegal Translation - A Reply by Karl Llewellyn; A Fable -- The Elderly Lawyer and the Highbrow Publisher by "O"; The Mathematics of Mortgage Moratoria by Fred Rodell; and Notes on the Missouri Admiralty: The Prairie Schooner from 1786 to 1834 by F.B. Wiener-Dougan. Also included is a menu for the Banquet, amusing "bios" for the contributors, humorous parodies of the Note and Legislation feature and the Recent Cases feature. The contribution from Fred Rodel is in verse with fabulous extensive footnotes. The roster at the front of the publication includes Richard H. Demuth, Roscoe Pound, Julian W. Mack, John M. Woolsey, Augustus N. Hand and Glenville Clark. The ad for "In the Next Issue" inside the front wrapper mentions "The Business of the House of Lords in Vacation, 1933" by Felix Frankfurter. Quite fun. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
