I think the signature is 千秋, perhaps read "Senshū", and the seal the same, though here the "秋" is written in the variant form "秌". This variant form of 秋 is not used in modern Japanese, but you will see it used in seals; see here for examples of this form in seal script:
There is a "Senshū" 千秋 mentioned in Ukiyo-e bunken shiryōkan as the illustrator of this 1907 novel:
I also know of a (late Meiji?) advertisement bearing a 千秋 signature:
I don't know if either of these is the same artist as the designer of your print -- certainly there's not any obvious stylistic consistency between them.
