Why We Love This

Association copy, inscribed and dated by editor Bernard McTigue on front free end paper to Mr. Hilary Knight, author and illustrator celebrated for his illustrations of the Eloise series of children's books, who in turn has inscribed it on the front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized quarto and 257 illustrations, including 74 plates in full color. ISBN: 0810907917. The New York Public Library's collection of rare children's literature, from Aesop to N.C. Wyeth, is here made available for the first time to the young people for whom they were originally intended. An immaculate copy with extraordinary provenance. 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.
