Well, first off, the signatures belong to Yoshitora 芳虎, not Yoshitoshi.

Each design bears the title "Honcho manga" 本朝漫画, and a couple bear a publisher inscription reading "Masa[da]ya" マサタヤ, presumably for Masadaya Heikichi 政田屋平吉. The censor seal appears to be for 1872, but I'm not sure which month.

Here's another sheet from the same series (or is closely related anyway):
