I'm not sure what to make of the page numbers on your impressions, which do not appear in the impression linked above. Perhaps they are from "Ehon jūrokushu" 絵本十六種, a four-volume publication collecting "reprints of 18th and 19th century Japanese picture-books." For more on that, see:

I haven't found any images from the latter publication, so I can't say for sure whether your pages are from it or from somewhere else.
