This looks like an album in which a set of Yoshiiku warrior prints has been bound together into a book.
Also the paper appears textured in these photos.
"Chirimen" in the title means a kind of crepe paper which was textured by pressing
The 'lantern' cartouche in the other print is not blank, it is a pink color which was originally more intense and then faded.
The prints in the album appear authentic, from the original blocks, but printed after the example in the database.
Yoshiiku's prints were not valuable enough to have forgeries made of them in his own lifetime.
