It is two panels of a triptych (three-print set), the leftmost panel is missing.
A samurai / historical print by Kunisada (Toyokuni III), published in the the late 1840's. So they are nearly 170 years old
There are two different signatures, on the center panel 'ichiyosai Toyokuni ga', and on the right panel 'kochoro Toyokuni ga'. Both are variants of the same artist
There are some holes in the prints because of having been eaten by beetles, this type of insect likes to eat paper, including Japanese prints
