  • 姚華 紀文達煙斗穎拓 水墨紙本 鏡心 一九二九年作
    葉恭綽、袁克文、宋伯魯、褚德彝、鄧邦述題識

    款識:
    己巳(1929)重陽後十日,老友玉甫先生自南京來訪,因覓得紀文達煙斗拓本一幀,索予用穎拓法復臨一本。時予已病臂兩秋,心緒殊破而情難卻,遂執管以應,並記於蓮華盦,姚華。

    題識:
    (葉)紀文達煙斗。葉恭綽。
    (袁)此為漢弟先生舊藏紀文達公故物也,世絕罕有,益足珍貴。姚氏雖體殘,然所摹拓之本頗真實,堪稱海內第一家,當傳於後世耳。克文觀題。
    (宋)河間文達先生以學問文章重於天下,而天性孤直,不喜以心性空譚標榜門戶,亦不喜攀疆扶貴之媚。終日煙不離手,文壇詩社盡誇名士風流耳。宋伯魯。
    (褚)此為陳漢第所藏,己巳(1929)年冬,暇日覽一過於書齋,褚德彝。
    (鄧)此大斗乃紀昀先生平生最愛之物。傳曰,斗木得於乾隆己酉夏末,灤陽小灣邨路旁有古麻梨子樹,高四丈,寬數圍。為颶風所拔。邨人伐其枝時,因木質堅如硬石,又帶棱角,半日不得幾段。去其葉幹,橫於地,百日內青蔥如故。先生聞知,親去取自一段。回之請匠人精製此斗,並書銘文十六字,刻於管上。百年後,陳忠恕得此,視如重寶,秘藏不喧。自管頸上刻銘後僅拓兩本,一本自留,一本贈友。此本不在二本中,乃玉甫先生請蓮花盦主穎之本也。自此宇內祗三本耳。況摹拓時,茫父已臂殘兩載,三載後仙逝。後輩恐無能者,當為寶之。鄧邦述。

    鈐印:(姚)茫父姚華、殘臂後二年、姚華穎拓、蓮華菴主人
    (葉)葉恭綽印
    (袁)寒雲、上第二子
    (宋)伯魯私印、宋氏芝田
    (褚)褚禮堂、德彝
    (鄧)鄧邦述印、戊戌翰林
