The artist is Kikukawa Eizan, here signing "Eizan hitsu" 英山筆. The lower of the two round seals near the bottom right is called a "gyōji" seal -- these were used as part of a censorship regime that was in use from 1811 to 1814, so that dates the publication with some precision. The seal to the immediate left of the gyōji seal belongs to publisher Yamaguchiya Tōbei.

The title (or series title?) in the upper right appears to me to read "Ryōmen aikyō kurabe" 両面愛敬くらべ, meaning something like "Mutual love and respect".
