See Hillier, The Art of the Japanese Book, p. 450 for a description of this book. It follows a young girl through marriage, childbirth and eventually taking her young son on his first visit to a temple. On the way, they pass a book store apparently belonging to the publisher Izumiya Ichibei, whose mark (Senichi) is in the upper right.
