The author is Rakutei Saiba (楽亭西馬), with illustrations by Kunisada and (principally) Kuniteru. It appears to be an adaptation of the Yumiharizuki, about which here:

Here's a scan of the full work:

Here's a scan of several volumes but with bibliographic information (in Japanese):

Looks like it was published between 1851 and 1855.
