Hilary Knight collection. Inscribed by costar Margaret Leighton, "To Emile, Best Wishes, Margaret Leighton" on page five. First Edition. Oversized quarto and profuse illustrations in black-and-white. Souvenir program from the original Broadway run of the Tony-winning play, featuring short biographies of the original cast (Bette Davis, Margaret Leighton, Alan Webb, Patrick O'Neal, et al.) and creative team, a short essay about the production by Tennessee Williams, and photographs from the performance.

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.
