I believe all three of these woodblock prints are original.
In the case of Eisen, the 'kiwame' seal places the date, probably, before 1842 - therefore my guess is from 1835 - 1840. A close examination of the seal in the lower right corner could maybe yield the year and month of publication
If this Eisen bijin-ga were a reproduction from Meiji or twentieth-century, the copiers probably would not have reproduced these date seals
