Hilary Knight collection, as confirmed by stamp on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized octavo and 32 pages of black and white illustrations. Rubinstein built her life and fortune on the premise that a woman need not be born beautiful to be beautiful. From modest beginnings, she became a princess by marriage and the undisputed queen of the beauty industry. 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.
