Dear forum members
Help add this woodblock information
author - 菊川 英山 Kikugawa Eizan (1787–1867)
signed - 菊川 英山筆 Kikugawa Eizan hitsu
date - 1810s
title - 青楼仁和嘉全盛遊 Seirô Niwaka zensei asobi
from the series Entertainments of the Niwaka Festival in the Yoshiwara in Full Swing
publisher's seal - Shimizu Marks #328 (Andreas Marks identifies this publisher as Mikawa-ya Seiemon)

It depicts girls in costumes of Chinese historical figures, perhaps the epoch of the Three Kingdoms?

Thanks to anyone willing to help me
