I believe this is the right part of a a set of three prints. The whole series is called "Shin Yoshiwara kyômachi itchôme – Kadoebi uchi". If the display of Japanese characters work, you will see the corresponding characters now: 新吉原京町壱丁目–角海老内.
The series name are the characters in the upper part and on the right side.
The two bigger characters on the left side is the title of your print and the characters are "藍染" I am sorry that I can't translate it.
As fas as I know this series consists of four 3-print sets.
The prints are all signed "Kôchôrô Kunisada ga" and the series was done in the second part of the Tempô-era, what would be between 1838 and 1844. Published by "Iseya Sanjirô" (Japanese characters: 伊勢屋三次郎).
: Hello All, Horst was kind enough to tell me it is Kochoro, 1840's. Can anyone help me with the title, or is this a poem of sorts. I didn't send him all of this. Also I have attached text and believe it is one of the tales' series of books. If anyone can translate it to a 'story'name I'd be glad to post it. Thank all of you for your time to my replys. Please try to use layman terms, I'm still very new at this and do not want to misrepresent myself on this most beautiful art form. Again, Fred
