It appears to be four different designs printed on a single sheet of paper. There's no signature, but if I had to guess, I would say that they were probably by Yoshitoshi. According to the censor's seal the print was published in the very beginning of 1870 (Snake 12). This was a period when Yoshitoshi published very little, after his series "One hundred warriors" had been abandoned after only 61 designs in 1869. Maybe this print was part of an attempt to continue the publication of the warrior series? Let's see what the Yoshitoshi experts have to say.

Best regards,
