Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized quarto, 167 profuse black and white illustrations. ISBN: 024189994X. An affectionate and idiosyncratic comic-strip history of the ruling classes, society scandals, triumphs and tragedies, controversial love affairs, dazzling social occasions and other incidents that have set the gossip writers scribbling throughout this action-packed era in English history. Tight binding.

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.
