Thoreau Journal Quarterly (ISSN: 0040-6392) was the membership publication for the Thoreau Fellowship, an organization based in Old Town, Maine, and founded by Mary P. Sherwood, Wade Van Dore, and Leonard Kleinfeld. The group was affiliated with the Department of English at the University of Maine at Orono. TJQ was released from 1969 to 1981, and ran from Volume I Number 1 to Volume XIII Number 3-4. Editors were Mary P. Sherwood (1969-1972), Lewis Leary (1973 1974), Richard F. Fleck (1975-1977), and Marie Olesen Urbanski (1978 1981), though Mary Sherwood served as managing editor for the first nine years. TJQ began as "a hybrid publication of professional, semi professional and popular items" about Henry David Thoreau's life and works, with a special focus on his trips and connections to Maine. Issues often included contemporary poetry inspired by Henry's words. At the close of 1981, the responsibility for the publication was moved to the Department of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota, and the periodical name was changed to The Thoreau Quarterly: A Journal of Literary and Philosophical Studies. We have the last remaining issues of TJQ and have assembled partial sets. They were stored in a barn at one point, so some covers have slight soiling. We can currently offer 30 issues of the original 49-issue run as one lot. These are now rare.
