Kawamura Bumpo 河村 文鳳 (1779 - 1821), an artist from Kyoto, influenced Hokusai for his Mangas. One of his books is on my website :

The wikipedia page in Japanese about Takehara Shunchosai mentions that he is mostly famous for his drawings of famous places (meisho-e), and indeed, none of the books he illustrated listed by Ritsumeikan and Waseda fall in the manga category.

Ritsumeikan :

(click on the numbers in the "view pages" column to see the books)

Waseda:

Concerning the mangas, on the wikipedia page in Swedish about Mangas, a historian (Jaqueline Bernd) gives a reference that claims that the term manga predates Hokusai. Unfortunately, that reference is not accessible to me.
