區耀灼(1908-2002),字昭武。廣東順德人。上世紀二、三十年代因躲避戰亂而移居香港,在上環經營店舖。區氏乃老派儒商,嗜好中國書畫,與香江文人墨客常相往還,和鄧爾雅、盧振寰、李研山、楊善深諸人不時雅聚於蓮香茶樓,亦常獲寫贈。
本輯釋出九件,其中饒宗頤、楊善深對聯乃楊公子天頤持贈區家二代。最可寶者當推晚清廣東學者朱次琦〈行書詩文手札〉卷(拍品編號135),收入〈清故贈君奮之朱公墓誌銘〉、〈塵沙行〉詩稿及〈致隱石三兄大人信札一則〉,尤以〈致隱石〉能見其性情,非一般文稿可比。卷首配盧振寰寫九江先生像,生動傳神。又董其昌〈書畫合璧〉八開冊(拍品編號136),書與畫俱佳,盡顯香光風流。而李研山〈春草池塘〉(拍品編號128),作於一九五八年,寫「池塘生春草,楊柳變鳴禽」畫意,筆墨鬆秀,極得清新淡雅之致。
