Nishinomiya Shinroku's gyōji censor seal appears on some of the prints published between 1811-14. Above is a link to the Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst in Vienna showing an Eizan print with his seal toward the bottom. It is there, but is almost unreadable. It is paired with the more generic kiwame seal as it was at this period with all of the other censors.
