Abstract: The transfinite duals of a space with a neighborly basis are constructed until they become nonseparable. Let $ s(X)$ be the first ordinal $ \alpha $ so that $ {X^\alpha }$ is nonseparable. It is shown that if $ X$ is nonreflexive, $ s(X) \leqslant {\omega ^2} + 1$ (this is best possible) and that $ \{ s(X):X{\text{separable quasireflexive of order one}}\} = \{ \omega + 1,\omega + 2,2\omega + 1,2\omega + 2,{\omega ^2} + 1\} $. A quasireflexive space $ X$ is constructed so that $ {X^\omega }$ is isomorphic to $ X \oplus {c_0}$ and no basic sequence in $ X$ is equivalent to a neighborly basis. It is shown that the $ {\omega ^2}$th dual of James space and James function space are isomorphic to subspaces of one another. Also, perhaps of interest on its own, a reflexive space with a subsymmetric basis is constructed whose inversion spans a nonreflexive space.
