Subject:18 Little woodblock prints

Last week I bought these 18 little woodblock prints 16,5cm x 11cm, in a thrift shop. Together with the passe-partouts 23cm x 13cm. I don’t think they are old, but I like the impressionistic style very much if you see them all together. Of course I hope it is by a famous artist, but everything remains a guess.
Did a lot of searching but couldn't find anything about it. I also don’t know what the scene is all about, maybe theater scenes, or different traditional costumes from Japan?
This one happens to have 3 seal cancels, all others 2. The black text on the passe partouts is written differently everywhere.
So I hope someone knows which artist the black monogram belongs to. The stamp just below it is that of the artist self or from someone else. I assume this one was bought later in the series because it has 2 stamps on the print itself, the passe partout will probably have been added later.
I am hopeful that someone can help me, at least partially.
Kind regards, Kees
