    Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized square quarto and 198 illustrations in black and white and color. ISBN: 0375405348. Offers hundreds of photographs of the pack rat's possessions (her dog tags, her cigarette case, her clothing and letters to and from lovers), and of course, snapshots and publicity stills of the incomparable Dietrich herself (in her "Eisenhower battle jacket" and in her gowns and jewels). Touching reminiscences from Josef von Sternberg and Jean Cocteau, among others, round out this valuable addition to the wealth of books dedicated to the German actress who became one of America's greatest icons. 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.
