Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. Second Edition. Oversized quarto and profuse illustrations in full color. The classic children's tale is brought to life here by extraordinary illustrations. Influenced by the Modern style, master illustrator Attilio Mussino in this edition created the definitive images for this timeless story - and in doing so, cemented its legacy. 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.
