Hello,
I'm wondering if anyone can help me translate the text in these photos. It would be much appreciated.
Thank you! Not sure why they are posting sideways.

Thank you so much. This is what I'm trying to decipher but it isn't making any sense to me! Do you have any clue what it could mean?

Can you see any name or signature on the picture that would tell me who it is by?

Thanks

What you posted are pages of a kind of an art reference book. The sentences are explanations about the pictures on each page. (That's why they contain the information about the original print such like the size or owner.) There are seals on the page, e.g., 雪洞 Setsudō, but they are the ones for the original print, not the page you posted.
