This copy of the standard nineteenth-century British treatise on courts martial belonged to James Ewell Brown "JEB" Stuart, the great Confederate general. The designation "1st Cavalry" dates his ownership of this book to 1855-1861, the period when he was a lieutenant, later Captain, in the U.S. Army. (He went on to lead the 1st Virginia Cavalry for the Confederacy in 1861-1862.) Stuart signatures and signed items are uncommon. The last three to appear at auction (in 2019), an undated clipped signature, a signed 1859 pay receipt and an 1863 letter with military content, received hammer prices of $2,250.00, $2,280.00 and $5,700.00.
