解説/Description
仮名垣魯文の手習の師であり、後に彫師となった奥川楽水が、出版用の原稿を募集するために製作した引札。版元からの注文によって生計をたてていた江戸時代の彫師が、版元を通さず直接出版用の原稿を募り、その筆者から彫刻料を徴収して出版しようとしていたことがわかる。幕末維新期の彫師が書肆へと発展しつつあったことを示す事例として興味深い。
This is a hikifuda (flyer) created by Okukawa Rakusui, a carver who was Kanagaki Robun's mentor, to call upon the public to submmit a manuscript to be published. During the Edo period, a carver normally earned his living by receiving orders from the publisher. But from the flyer, we can see that a carver put out an advertisement to receive orders directly from the public and accept remuneration from the manuscript's author. It is an interesting example that carvers in the late Edo period to the early Meiji period were already beginning their transition into book stores.
