Thank you for the excellent image! That makes things much easier; much better than the blurry, distant images which so many people provide.
The artist is Toyokuni III, and the date is (as given by the censor seal) is 'Tiger/4'; the period is 1853-1857 (as shown by the separate 'aratame' and zodiac seals). You can learn more about the date seals here:
which will help you read most dates without needing help.
You ask about "the editor" - I assume you mean the publisher? That is Daikokuya Heikichi (Shōjudō).
