Hilary Knight collection, with his stamp of ownership and signature on front pastedown. First Edition. Oversized quarto and profuse illustrations in black and white. A compendium of the 39 films featuring the enchanting beauty, star of Abie's Irish Rose, who won her niche in the motion picture hall of fame as the first girl to sing into a movie microphone and to dance on a soundstage. Features cast, credits, synopsis, and selected critical reactions for each film, along with hundreds of stills and publicity photos. 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.
