This is a combined 'kiwame' censor seal and separate 'gy˘ji' seal (= name of a representative of the publisher guild, appointed by the government for the time of a month). The 'gy˘ji' seal in here, refers to 'Baku' (莫 - identity unclear). The 'Baku' seal was in use between 1813 (1st month) and 1814 (3rd month.
