Stempels Grand Hotel in Haarlem - The Enschede Company - HVP 7.7

Hi passengers!

Haarlem.EN presents tonight these pictures from HVPSM 2.0 shoted in July 13, 2007 inside & outside Stempels located in Klokhuisplein (City-centrum). The Hotel Restaurant Café & Brasserie is open since August 16, 2006. 
Make knowledge with the Stempels Food and Accomodation Company through the views shoted around the building.
The music is performed by Groove Armada and mixed into these pictures to present the following numeric report made by Jean Gregorio where you will learn about The Enschede Company, a name linked with the history of  this building in the past centuries... 
Stempels - An hotel in the centrum of city Haarlem 
Hotel Stempels is not just a hotel, but also features a restaurant, brasserie and pub. This all happens on the premises of the former Joh. Enschede complex, where for many years the Dutch banknotes have been pressed as well as post stamps for a lot of different countries. In other words, a place with a rich history, renovated into a modern hotel-restaurant, full of cosy atmosphere, right in the centre of the monumental heart of Haarlem.

On the first, second and third floor of the building are seventeen hotel rooms. There are six standard rooms, four superior rooms, five luxury rooms, one junior suite and one suite. All rooms are provided with Hästens beds, a flat screen television set, a computer, internet facilities, toilet and a shower. The luxury rooms and suites also have a bath. Like everywhere in the building one can find original decorations and ornaments in the hotel rooms.
Staying at the front of the building gives you a magnificent view of the Klokhuisplein and the St.Bavo church.

Is anyone aware of a bibliography to publications of
the Dutch type-designers and printers Johann Enschede &
Zonen of Haarlem?  Today they are perhaps more
well-known in America for their fine printing than as
publishers.  Specifically, I am attempting to find any
information on a recent acquisition whose title page
reads as follows:

Jorinde und Joringel / Marchen von den Gebr. Grimm
/ Geschrieben und illustriert / von / Irmengard Nicolaus
/ Privatdruck / hergestellt in 100 Abrugen / von / Joh.
Enschede en Zonen / in / Haarlem. / Dieser Abdruck tragt
die Nr.  [Hand-numbering has been omitted.  I have left
out the umlauts in "Marchen", "Abrugen" and "tragt"
because they won't transmit]

The book is bound in stiff green-mottled paper with a
string tie on the spine.  The twenty leaves are printed
on rectos only and include five coloured plates and a
colour-bordered half-title.  There is no date.  So far,
I've searched OCLC, Pre-56 Imprints, and some major
European museum catalogues, etc. and am not finding
anything.  Any light on the subject would be greatly
appreciated.  Thanks!
