The signature looks to me like "ōju Kinsen e" 応需 錦泉 絵, belonging to Suzuki Kinsen 鈴木錦泉. Also see the attached image for an isolated/enhanced view of the seal -- it looks like a Kinsen seal to me.

Kinsen was a prolific kuchi-e artist, and Yoshio Katō's site lists dozens of books containing his illustrations and with scans available (mostly at the National Diet Library):

I think there's a good chance you could find the source, if you want to spend the time and effort digging through all of those!
