9 issues of this uncommon Greenwich Village monthly magazine from the late teens and early 1920s called The Quill. All 9 volumes clean, well-preserved and VG. Digest-sized in their stapled pictorial wrappers. Somewhat of a precursor --and vaguely similar-- to "The New Yorker" but with a much more specific focus. Regular columns, for example, included "'Round Our Square ("Gossip")", "Shops of Particular Interest", "Sullivan Street", etc. and some of the featured local talent included Paul Reps, Francis Cugat (who would illustrate "The Great Gatsby's" immortal dustjacket several years later), Maxwell Bodenheim, William Gropper, Josephine Bell, Willy Pogany, Mary Austin, etc. The issues include June-July 1917 (the maiden and 2nd issue), Oct.-Dec. 1917, Feb. 1918, June 1918, Dec. 1918, Jan-Feb 1919, April 1919 and the 5 year anniversary issue, June 1922. A nice collection of early Greenwich Village history. Bookseller Inventory #
