Kikugawa Eizan designed woodblock prints at the beginning of the 19th century. His most successfull designs date from about 1830-1840. If you got a real one and it's an early issue, then you're lucky. But don't be disappointed if it's a late reprint or even a copy.
My mother has one just like yours. It appeared to be a copy from the first half of this century. Some of them have seals of the shop in the margin. You'll find those seals on this site!!! Click on the link in this letter to see them.
If this is not the case, then try to place a picture of it on this site or show the print to an expert (at a museum).
Yours truly, Theo de Kreijger
