It's from volume 42 of the long-running gōkan "Shiranui monogatari". Earlier volumes were written by Ryūkatei Tanekazu (1807-1858), but this one is by Ryūtei Tanehiko II 柳亭種彦 1806-1868 (aka Ryūtei Senka). The illustrator of this part of the series was Utagawa Yoshiiku. The censor seal is for 1864.1.

I'm afraid I don't know much about the story, nor have any information on what this scene is illustrating.
