Was Napoleon killed in 1798?

Item # 624902

December 27, 1798

THE TIMES, London, Dec. 27, 1798  Page 3 has a report from Paris which includes: "...has been in circulation to-day, brought from Vienna, of the death of Buonaparte. The difference of the particulars in this account makes it very questionable. This General is in three ways said to have been killed--in the open field, while engaged in battle--in the street as he was going to a meeting--and in an Assembly of the Notables of Egypt..." with more. He did not die until 1821.
Four pages, wear at folds with some separation  & some minor loss, a small piece from the last leaf does not affect the noted report.
