The title appears to be 奮闘履約. Going by the furigana, it seems it should be read "Funtō yaku o fumu". But that is confusing to me, since 履 has a reading "fumu", and 約 a reading "yaku", so possibly there is a mistake in the order of either the kanji or the gloss.

Anyway, some info here:

According to that site, the figures are Katō Kiyomasa 加藤清正, Inoue Daikurō 井上大九郎, and Kimura Matazō 木村又蔵.

Hara Shobo sold an impression of this design, and they have a nice image of it, but they seem to have slightly mistranscribed the title:

Publisher: Matsunaga Sakujirō 松永作次郎.
Date: Meiji 26 (1893)
