On the red sheet is the title "Kachô gafu" (Album of Birds and Flowers), Kyôto, and the name of the publishing company "Giseidô".
I have problems with the reading of the artist's name at the right on that page. The 2nd character is probably "雪" ('setsu' or 'un') and the last reads clearly "hitsu" but I could not decipher characters nrs 1 and 3. I tried to read also the 2nd seal, at the left on the 4th page but without succes.
The 5th page gives the date of publication: Meiji 22 (1889) and the names of the 3 publishers - from L ot R: Kojima Heisaburô, Kojima Miyokichi and Okawa Jôkichi with their adresses.
