The Historiographical Institute gives the date for this one as Meiji 1, and provides a slightly different title than Waseda, 和漢諸軍談世間坊賎丸. I'm not sure how to translate that, but it looks like a depiction of a Rakugo 落語 storytelling performance, and the title seems to suggest the topic is military in nature.

Here's a Japanese-language article on the design:

I confess I can't make much sense of the article, unfortunately, but it seems to include a brief history of Rakugo.
