I believe the signature belongs to Samukawa Unchō 寒川雲晁 (born 1821), an artist most known as a Nanga painter. You can find various examples of his (painted) signatures with a search, but here's a sample that appears to support the attribution well.

As manuD says, this is an interesting series with a lot of difficult-to-identify signatures, especially in the insets. I have been spending some time on it since you posted, Chris, and will hopefully be able to identify at least a few of them!
