Illustrated by Henry Hutt. Book from early 1900’s.

What appears to be autographs on title page, ‘Wal Brown’ and ‘Beryl Gilman’ (a popular soprano of the time in NZ)


Winnifred Eaton’s books, many of them published under the Japanese pseudonym Onoto Watanna, encompass the experiences of marginalized women in Canada, Jamaica, the United States, and a romantic, imagined Japan.

Marion: The Story of an Artist's Model is Eaton's only book that explicitly deals with being "foreign" in Canada. The novel follows the life of "half-foreign" Marion Ascough - a character based on Eaton's own sister. Escaping the unrelenting racial discrimination her family endures in Quebec, Marion follows her dream of being an artist by moving to New York, where she becomes "Canadian" instead of ethnic - a more palatable foreignness. Having successfully stripped herself of her ethnicity, Marion continues to experience discrimination as a woman, failing as an artist and becoming an artist's model.
