This is the right sheet of a triptych from a Kunisada/Hiroshige collaborative series entitled "Fūryū Genji" 風流源氏 ("Fashionable Genji"), published 1853. This design is "Furyu Genji Suma no Shiogama" ("Elegant Genji at the Salt Kilns at Suma").

As to whether you should buy it, I always say "buy it if you like it and the price is right".
