It’s the cover page of one volume from the book “Jiraiya gōketsu monogatari“ (児雷也豪傑譚); see https://archive.wul.waseda.ac.jp/kosho/he13/he13_01180/ no. 10. The signature reads “gedai Toyokuni ga“ (>>Gedai (外題) refer to the title of a literary or artistic work. Means "title", so my interpretation of these signatures is "Title page is Toyokuni's work" (a cover by Kunisada and contents done by his students under his loose supervision)<<).
Inside the book it is dated to 10/1853.
