The signature is Hokusai's, signing 卍老人筆 ("Manji Rojin hitsu"). I think the smaller text indicates that he was 89 years old at the time.
I haven't been able to find any publication information related to this design, and I'm not even sure if the design was intended as a print at all, or if it was executed as a scroll painting and then later published in print form?
