Hi Guy -- just jumping in on this one, the seal is catalogued by Marks along with unknown publisher seals. He notes:

"Presumably a collector's seal as it was later applied on prints from c. 1780s-1860s and is found together with other publisher seals as well as on prints that are usually without publisher seals (e.g. surimono)."

In any event, the print under discussion here appears to me to read "Ōmi Tamagawa" 近江 玉川 at top right -- presumably this is the Jewel River of Bush Clover in Ōmi Province. The design in the fan looks plausibly like bush clover growing by a stream to me, or at least it resembles such scenes from other "Mu Tamagawa" series.

I haven't identified any other prints that could be in series with this one.
