Looks like the image appeared in "Ehon Asakayama" (1739):
I see several of the images in the series you found at MAK are from this book. I wonder if the MAK prints were produced as a sort of special edition to capitalize on the popularity of the book? That sort of thing happened a lot in the 19th century, particularly with genji-e.
