This design comes from Hiroshige's Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō Road, originally published 1833-1834. The print you've included is taken from recarved blocks. I see that Artelino lists a print that looks much like yours, including the color-inverted seal near the title:

Their listing says "edition was published probably in early 20th century".

Is there a cover or title page in your book that might shed some more light on the publication?
