Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized quarto and over 400 black and white illustrations. ISBN: 0806505834. A complete photographic record of Day's career, documenting each film with synopsis, cast, credits, reviews, and comments on the production. A warm biographical introduction reveals the complex woman beneath the "Girl Next Door." 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.
