Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized folio and pervasive illustrations in black and white and color, including 130 full-page plates. ISBN: 039455938X. Contains graphic images. Undoubtedly the most sought after volume in Weber's impressive bibliography. A beautifully edited collection of images from several decades, sensuously documenting lives of passion and hedonism.

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.
