The signature (lower right) reads "Kikugawa Eizan", a prominent artist of the early 1800s.

The round seal next to that is a censor seal (no date, alas), and the square seal will be that of the publisher.

The row of 4 charaters in the upper left may be the name of the establishment she worked at; it ends with the character "CHŌ/machi", which means 'district', often given in such names.

That appears to be a series title in the upper right; I also see the number 7 (middle character), again along with 'district', so it's probably something like '7 Beauties of the xx District'.
