This design is cataloged by both Waseda University and Japan Arts Council (links below). Neither offers any artist attribution, but JAC suggests a publication date of 1863-1865.

Given the lack of authorship or publication information on the print (or any censor seals) I would guess that the text probably contains some sort of criticism of government policy. Such open (but anonymous) criticism was much more common during the Bakumatsu than previously.{%22subDB_id%22:%2252%22,%22id%22:%22175789;1%22}&lang=en
