The artist is Kobayashi Ikuhide, here indicated by his legal name, Kobayashi Eijirō 小林英次郎. Above his name is his address, which matches the one given in the colophon of this charming little children's book illustrated by Ikuhide:
The publisher, given top-left as "Higuchi-han" 樋口板", appears to be Higuchi Shintarō 樋口鋠太郎 -- the address given at bottom left matches that given for that of Higuchi Shintarō as given by Marks, [Nihonbashi] Bakurochō Nichōme 7-banchi [日本橋]馬喰町二丁目七番池.
The date, as manuD notes, is given as Meiji 15.
