Greetings! I ask for help in translating the inscriptions to determine the plot and the author of the engraving.  Respectfully!

This is a scene showing future Shogun, Minamoto Yoritomo (源頼朝), taking his army into the north of Japan to subjugate the forces there.

源頼朝奥州征伐

 

The middle frame shows the name of the printer, Ezakiya of Bakurochō in Tokyo/Edo. 江崎屋辰蔵版

 

None of these show the name of the artist, and I cannot find this exact image in the online databases. It is a common theme, but I can't quite locate this exact image. One of the other bits of writing on the print must contain the artist's name. The small cartouches next to the various people in the print contain their names, no doubt, so there must be some writing near the edges of the print that show the artist's name.

Thank you Steve, for the translation, I searched in the analogs, I could not find such an image either. Explore the engraving for the presence of other inscriptions.

20181228_021958.jpg Alexsandr, the circled areas are most likely the signature of the artist.

Thanks for the definition and disclosure of the plot-informative and instructive! Respectfully!
