Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on inside front cover. Reprint. Oversized octavo and profuse illustrations in black and white and color. ISBN: 0448110067. A selection of thirteen tales told by Scheherazade in the Arabian Nights which enchanted the cruel sultan so much that he gave up executing his daily wives. 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.
