The Shuncho is Pins #766; he does not, alas, provide a transliteration of the inscription, or anything else about it.
Kiyotsune does not appear to have done much work in hashira-e; Pins contains only 3 works by him (124-126).
These both appear to be in reasonably good condition (for their age); although the Kiyotsune is rather worm-eaten, the colours are 'not bad' for a print of this age, where the colours are often very fugitive. (I have seen lots of hashira-e which have faded to pure black and white...)
I know these are in frames, but _please_ do not put them on the wall - if you do, in only a few short years the colours will have faded even more. So please keep them in a closet, or something, and only bring them out for special occasions - and even then, hang them somewhere where they will not get direct sunlight.
