Abstract

316 war period it was rare for old bookbindings to come onto the market. Despite this, Max was still able to lay hands on some precious Magnus bindings. The shop now began to lay more stress on Dutch literature and topography, atlases and illustrated books. The sales, beginning in 1965, of Major J. R. Abbey's legendary collection unexpectedly led to an overwhelming supply of old bindings. Max Elte took advan- tage of this by, for example, buying the famous five-volume Chrysostom together with Nico Israel, with whom he often collaborated. In 1969 it was given a worthy place in the Koninklijke Bibliotheek. Also important was the purchase en bloc of the collection left by one of Elte's longest-standing customers, F. W. D. C. A. van Hat- tum, rich in Dutch topography, songbooks and emblem books. Part of this library was sold privately, the rest was offered through the medium of an attractively pro- duced catalogue. Max Elte was no less popular with both customers and colleagues on account of his profound specialist knowledge than for his frank, independent nature. Cordial, cheerful, always waggish, he was at home everywhere and everywhere a welcome guest. He was also well known
