Note that Shōsadō 尚左堂 was an art-name of the artist more usually known as Kubo Shunman 窪俊満.
Shunman was a writer as well as an artist, and provided poetry for quite a number of prints designed by others. It's not entirely obvious what exactly Shunman is taking credit for in this print, the design or writing. And while I don't usually give opinions based on stylistic judgement, here I will say that the draftsmanship of the design looks pretty clumsy for Shunman. Perhaps Shunman has contributed only text here, and the design is by another member of one of the poetry clubs of which Shunman was a member?
