I've only been able to firmly identify two of these, but here's what I've got...
Top left: "Kumiuchi daikassen" 組討大合戦 -- seems to be signed by Yoshitora, but the first part of the signature is too rubbed to make out. Have not identified this.
Top right: 麓山村岡口記・鹿児島戦争 -- illustrated by Yoshiharu, a chronicle of the Satsuma Rebellion, available here:
Bottom right: "Fukushū Soga monogatari" 復讐曽我物語 ("The Tale of the Revenge of the Soga") -- illustrated by Yoshitora, available here:
Bottom left: No idea on this one... would need to see a title page or something to get a better idea.
