I have to translate the contents of this print of Yoshitoshi from the Series: "Eimei nijuhachi shuku" (28 famous murders with verses), but I am not an ukiyo-e expert indeed. You can see this image on the Image URL.
So, my questions are:
On the the top left of the image I can read (from right to left) "Oju" that it means "special demand", but I don't know what it means the following inscription.
On the bottom left I can read Yoshitoshi's seal: "Ikkaisai Yoshitoshi Hitsu", and on this right in a circle the seal date (maybe Hare 5th month).
But I can not decifrate the other seals (maybe the publisher seal and the graver seal).
Can anybody help me?
