Great find!

But I am doubtful of that attribution... according to Genshoku ukiyoe daihyakka jiten, Kiyotada III died in 1875. The same information is also given in the Wikipedia entry for the artist (presumably copied from GUDJ):

https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E9%B3%A5%E5%B1%85%E6%B8%85%E5%BF%A0_(3%E4%BB%A3%E7%9B%AE)

On the other hand, 1899 is solidly in Kiyotada IV's period of activity, so I think that's a better bet. Also, Kiyotada III is not recorded as having used the "Nanryō" gō.
