Subject:Japanese Orihon Seals

Firstly, sorry to post just the seals and not the actual book, but as it's several metres long this just wouldn't be practical (I'd be happy to provide photos at request).
I bought a badly damaged orihon recently, and was interested to know if anyone is able to recognise/decipher any of the seals used to sign it? It's very long and in quite an elaborate calligraphy hand (along with a couple of passages in seal script), so I haven't been able to make head nor tail of what it means.
Someone put the effort into salvaging it by having it rebound at some point in the early 20th C, so I'm trying to get a toehold into making some sense of what its subject and age might be (like if it's a historical account or some type of story etc.).
