Ehon Toyotomi Kunkoki was published in Osaka in tranches of ten volumes between 1857 and 1860. There seem to have been at least seven tranches! Several illustrators were involved. Yours seems to come from the second (nihen), which was illustrated by Kuniyoshi and has a colophon (on vol.10) dated Ansei 5 (1858). I have nine of the ten volumes of the fourth (shihen) part [lacking vol.6 - anyone out there got an odd copy??] also by Kuniyoshi and dating from 1860.
