Four prints from the series are illustrated, identified, and briefly discussed in: Izzard, S.: Kunisada's World. New York: Japan Society & Ukiyo-e Society of America. 1993 (ISBN: 0-913304-37-9), pp. 130-133. It includes your subject of Komurasaki and Gonpachi plus three other pairs of famous lovers (Ofusa & Tokubei, Umegawa & Chűbei, and Umegae & Genta) from legend and from puppet and kabuki plays. The series of ten known prints is dated c. 1832 and was published by Kinjud˘ (Iseya Rihei). The backgrounds of all the prints depict pages of the j˘ruri libretti that include some of the dialogues from the plays.

I like the designs very much - they are boldly executed and effectively colored.
