This comes from volume 2 of "Ehon imayo sugata" 絵本時世粧, illustrated by Toyokuni I and published 1802. According to the British Museum, which has Jack Hillier's former copy of this, the names in the cartouches were struck off after the first edition, suggesting that the pages you have are from the first.
