Ah, I see ! Thanks for adding the close-up image of the seal. This seal is the 'aratame' which won't give us the year / month of publication. It only proves that the print was published before the year 1842.

The way to go to figure it out exactly would be to identify the kabuki drama, then look at historical records of Japanese theatre to see in what year that performance took place. Sometimes it's possible !
