Anyone have any ideas about the signature on this 1880 sericulture-themed print? The design seems to closely mirror that of a series by Fusatane, but with a different publisher.
What I have discerned so far:
Artist signature: Kisai Shō(?)… hitsu 驥齋樵囗筆
Series title: Kaiko yashinai kusa 蚕養草
Design title: 御?子蚕
Inset text: 絹笠明神
Publisher: Satō Shintarō 佐藤新太郎 (though at a different address in Nihonbashi Bakurochō than listed by Marks)

Any clues much appreciated!
