The design is by Hokusai, and appeared in an e-hon called Ryobi Shahitsu (良美灑筆) in 1820. Here's a dealer listing for two versions of that book:

I notice there are some compositional differences between your prints and the 1820 edition... the text and some of the smaller figures are missing from your version -- I'm not sure what to make of that.
