Thank you Guy for your most interesting and educating response. I searched for information about baiyaku-e and found it interesting that they were inexpensive prints given away with the purchase of patent medicines.
Are you saying (or am I reading something incorrectly), that the signature Yoshimori was likely used by Matsuura Moriyoshi as a play on his own name and the artist is likely Moriyoshi. OR, was the print a copy made from older, used blocks that were purchased and the image is by another artist? The image is not very well printed so I can see that it was a cheaply produced print.
