    Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized octavo and numerous illustrations in black-and-white. The book which proves beyond doubt that simplicity is the epitome of sophisticated entertaining. A fine copy of this extremely rare classic cookbook by the legendary fashion designer. 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.
