The design appears in Hiroshige's "Ehon Edo miyage" 絵本江戸土産 ("Picture Book of the Souvenirs of Edo"), volume 4 ("North").

Have a look at:

I notice that your impression is clearly from a different key block than the one on the above site. To my eye, it looks rather closer to the one at the Met:

I don't have any particular information about the publication history of these books.
