Lesley,

The two square seal under the signature read 辰 (Shin); 斎 (Sai).

The red round seal at the bottom left is a hand-pressed printer's seal; it reads 'sukik˘ Shinz˘' (摺工 晉象 - engraver: Shinz˘). The character 工 in the seal is written in a ancient Chinese variant (see image).
This seal is encountered on surimono designs by Kuniyasu and Kuniyoshi, somewhat later c. 1820s-30s.

Guy.
