Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection, previously acquired from the collection of Town & Country editor M. Stannard Doyle, as indicated by stamp on front free end paper. First Edition. Hardcover, oversized quarto and profuse black and white illustrations. ISBN: 0912458720. From its first days through the late 1940s, scenes of the life and progress of Palm Beach county are placed before you, including the faces, homes, parties, gowns, jewels, yachts, and resort life of the dazzling personalities who created such a fascinating aura around it.

About David Duncan

Sometime in the early ’50s, Hilary Knight’s drawings of naughty little girls for Mademoiselle magazine led to a meeting with author Kay Thompson (then a top nightclub performer)--and, of course, to the perpetually adored Eloise, the precocious Plaza dweller who in many ways is Knight’s alter ego. “Eloise will be celebrating her 60th birthday in 2015--not bad for a six-year-old,” says Knight. We’re honored to offer these personal pieces from Knight, who remains as stylish, outspoken, and original as the legendary little girl he brought to life.
