Big Table, Chicago. 1959, 120p., very good first edition trade paperback literary journal in pictorial wraps. Very nice, clean copy in spite of white covers by Aaron Siskind. The journal contains the first publication of excerpts from Alan Ginsberg's Kaddish. Big Table was created as a response to the University of Chicago suppressing the Winter 1959 issue of The Chicago Review due to worries about obscenity. That issue would contain excerpts from "Naked Lunch" and Kerouac's "Old Angel Midnight" In Spring of 1959 the entire staff had abandoned the Review and published the suppressed issue as "Big Table 1"
