2 Wiseman, Adele Old woman at play
Toronto Clarke, Irwin 1978 077201230X / 9780772012302 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Good 
077201230X 148 pages. Chaika Wiseman is 82 now - a Ukrainian Jew who came to Canada in the 1920s. In childhood and now again for several decades she has been making dolls - an outpouring of "naive" art that is astonishing in its variety and profusion, and also astonishing for what it tells us about Chaika Wiseman's own history and vision of life. Relates Chaika's tough, idiosyncratic family; a childhood in Russia - the river, the village people, the pograms - and the struggle to make ends meet during the Depression in Winnipeg. Then, leads readers into the mystery - why the dolls and where they came from. Illustrated in colour and black and white. Prior owner's name upon front endpaper else unmarked. Very light wear. Minor moisture stain to top edge of text. Dust jacket bears three 1" tears to back panel and average wear. Nice copy.
