    Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized folio and 215 illustrations including 140 full-color plates. ISBN: 0810914832. From the Vanderbilts to the Reagans, today's newsmakers and those of a bygone era fill the pages of this book with elaborate sentiments and sweet memories. Stately homes and valentines, snapshots and works of art, extensive gardens and single flowers - all come into the wide range of carefully planned and cherished gifts. Tight binding.

    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.
