The lower (octagonal) seal belongs to Kyoto-based publisher Uchida, and reads "版元 うちだ" ("Hanmoto Uchida").

The upper seal is presumably an artist seal. These use stylized archaic character forms and can be hard to read, but I am inclined to transcribe this one as "金鳥", possibly read "Kinchō". And indeed, ukiyo-e.org finds a few prints by this artist listed by Ronin under "Kincho". I have not found any other information about this artist.
