Hilary Knight collection, as confirmed by stamp on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized quarto and pervasive black and white illustrations. ISBN: 0312265581. In the tradition of Robert Mapplethorpe and Tom Bianchi, this photographic display of men lounging and playing on the beach celebrates the male figure and the pleasures of friendship on a summer's day. The work of this popular New York City photographer is accompanied by an essay by Ernesto Mestre-Reed. Contains graphic images. 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.
