This seal can be found in the table of reprint publisher seals in volume 3 of Genshoku Ukiyoe Daihyakka Jiten (1982). Here it is identified as belonging to the publisher Iwanami Shoten 岩波書店, a major publishing house founded in 1913.

The seal is basically identical to one used by Katōya Iwazō in the Edo period, as mentioned by Lucienne, but reprints of this sort basically didn't exist at that time -- rather they are creatures of the export market that arose in the early 20th century.

I'm not sure what the red seal is -- perhaps a clearer picture would help clarify matters.
