ま免なくさ
寛政11年(1799)~享和元年(1801)
吉田鯉洲編

 尾張に住む吉田鯉洲(よしだりしゅう)という人物が巷で聞く珍談奇談を集めた本です。
2009年に行われた岩瀬文庫の蔵書の人気投票で第4位に選ばれました。尾張藩士の高力種信(猿候庵)によるユニークな挿絵も魅力的です。
 津軽の山奥に住む仙女。九州筑然の生まれで、600才を越えるという。
 江戸の王子の狐が年頃の娘に化けて、日本橋の魚屋の金太郎という男と心中したと言う話。
 谷中の観音寺の桜が六月の土用(新暦に直すと真夏)に満開になり、見物人で賑わった。
 麻布の水茶屋の92歳の「かめ」という婆が男子を出産。生まれて直ぐに話をした。
 鎌倉で生け捕られた「夜ぶすま」という獣。大きさ8尺(2.5メートル)で、お殿様もご覧になった。
 丹後の国の宮津の海から現れた重さ330キロもある“木魚”“豊虎”という生き物。
 尾張愛知郡米野木村に住む娘が、次第に体が男に変化し、とうとう男として元服した話。

 著者の吉田鯉洲は、詳しい経歴は不明。息子とともに祈祷家、霊能力者として有名な「奇人」で、本の内容に負けず劣らず、本人も不思議な人物のようです。

 This is the story of a cherry tree of Kannon Temple in Yanaka in the month of June, (on the current calendar the hottest part of summer) which became fully bloomed and drew a large number of sightseers.
 In this one a ninety-two year old woman named Kame, who ran a tea spot in Azabu, gave birth to a boy. He was able to speak immediately after birth.
