1862 Civil War Rebel Book Stolen Confederate Union Ilchaplain Baker Manuscript

A TRUE CIVIL WAR RELIC
BEING A SCARCE RELIGIOUS BOOK,
ONCE OWNED BY A 1ST SGT JAMES J QUARLES OF THE 30TH MISSISSIPPI,
FOUND AND 'RECOVERED' BY A UNION ARMY CHAPLAIN
NAMED N. M. BAKER OF THE 116TH ILLINOIS
WHILE HOLDING CAMP HOSPITAL IN QUARLES' RANSACKED CABIN IN DECEMBER 1862,
DURING THE FAMOUS 'TALLAHATCHIE MARCH!'BOOK TITLE:
Memoir Of Mrs. Ann H. Judson, Late Missionary To Burmah. Including A History Of The American Baptist Mission In The Burman Empire Lincoln & Edmands, Boston, 1829.
3RD ED.CONDITION:This recollection is by an American woman who did missionary work in the Far East. It has an interesting provenance, bearing two contemporary signatures of previous owners, one a Union Chaplain and one a Confederate Sgt. More below.
Full brown leather with gilt bands on spine. Red leather spine label. Leather with wear and scuffing, as it sustained a Union ransacking of its original owners abode. Portrait frontispiece and folding map of Burma both present, as shown. Hinge in front split wide open, first grouping of pages detached. Pages stained, foxed, but all there and present. CIVIL WAR PROVENANCE/CONNECTION:First EPs with Quarles family inscriptions, including Confederate 1st Sgt J. J. Quarles numerous times. Quarles was out serving with the 30th Mississippi when the cabin this book was 'found' in was ransacked by Union soldiers, and used as a Camp Hospital. The 'finder' was 116th IL Chaplain Nathan M. Baker, who has indicated on the first EP his experience in finding the book while on Grants Central Mississippi Campaign, the 'Tallahatchie March.'
Verbatim:On December 5th, 1862, we crossed the Tallahatchie river and advanced about six miles to the vicinity of Bawls Mills. Here we encamped for several days. About one fourth mile from camp was a plain log house which was appropriated as a regimental hospital. This house seemed to have been the residence of some professor, as there were philosophical apparatus and a large library, classical and historical. These books were being ransacked and as I had often heard my mother speak of the Memoirs of Mrs Judson, I though I would try and prize it.
