The series is listed in Marks, as well as on the full series list at Yoshitoshi.Net. Both agree that the series title is 雅立功名鑑, but disagree on the reading. Marks gives "Miyabita kōmyō kagami", but Yoshitoshi.Net gives "Mitate kōmyō kagami". I've never seen "mitate" spelled "雅立", but I would guess this information comes from Keyes, so I don't know which is the better reading.
Both sources give the publication date as 1877. The publisher was Kodama Matashichi 児玉又七.
The depicted figure has a brief entry at the British Museum:
Usui no Aratarō Sadamitsu (碓井荒太郎貞光)
One of the four faithful retainers of Minamoto no Yorimitsu
