I've found two prints in institutional collections that appear to belong to this series, but the institutions offer conflicting information...

MFA Boston (21.4933) reads "Kōto jussho zekkei" and attributes their print to Eishi, c. 1790:

The British Museum (1907,0531,0.85) reads "Edo Jisho Zekkei" and attributes theirs to Katsukawa Shunchō 春潮:

I don't know on what basis either institution makes its attribution -- neither design is signed.

The series does not appear to be listed in Marks, but the seal looks to me to be a good match for that of Enomotoya Kichibei 榎本屋吉兵衛.
