LOTS 128-136

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。

    (三)史遷有言「高山仰止,景行行止,雖不能至,然心嚮往之」,昭武宗兄既得〈九江先生遺墨〉而珍藏之,復摹先生肖像以伸景仰,其嚮往之誠已可概見矣。昔白沙先生迎宋丞相菊坡像於家,隅坐瞻仰,若子弟之於師者,景仰先哲之意,古今同此心理也。庚辰(1940)秋日,區大原敬跋。
    (四)余於庚辰續修《南海志》,曾為九江先生撰傳,先生之行誼學術,心嚮久矣。昭武仁兄以先生遺象屬題,老成典型,昕夕相對,是即堯羹舜牆之意也。庚辰(1940)八月,桂坫謹跋微。

    題跋:
    卷內朱贈公墓誌銘,潘忠毅公鐸撰文,而九江先生所手錄也。先生為贈公第三子,贈公之卒,先生年二十有三,越十年,歲次己亥道光十九年(1839),潘忠毅來粵典試,先生舉於鄉,故忠毅為先生舉主。翌年春,先生以會試北行,嘗次德州苦水鋪,卷內〈塵沙行〉詩即作於是時。又七年丁未(1847),先生成進士,即用知縣。明年己酉(1849)之官山西,先欲取道汴梁,以舉主潘忠毅方任豫撫,嘗為晉藩,將問晉政於潘公也。道過所知宦楚者,以為先生此行,持之有故,咸迎謂曰「君往汴梁耶?今晉撫與潘公同鄉同年,今晉首府亦潘公同年也,得此先,容勝於十部從事矣。」先生默念「君子立身行事,當昭昭如日月之明,離離若星辰之行。微特較然,不欺其志而已,安能隨波靡犯,笑侮招逆,億以察察之,躬為當世所指目耶?」遂不果往汴梁。既抵太原,寄兄弟書極論此事,且自訟焉,即卷內寄隱石宜城書是也。在太原需次二年,壬子咸豐二年(1852)七月,署理襄陵縣事,在任百九十日而去,仍返太原。時潘忠毅左官晉臬,為先生銘其先人墓,蓋在癸丑(1853)之歲,去贈公之卒已二十四年,而先生年四十有七矣。又二年,先生南歸。自是之後,常居九江,講學二十餘年。卷內秦漢六朝文篇目意,即講學時選授學者,其詳不復可考。合觀全卷,所獲先生墨跡於先生之生平,籍可略見一二,非尋常小札之比,良可寶也。庚辰(1940)三月,再傳弟子岑光樾謹識。
