Napoleon Buonaparte's Egyptian campaign, and his death?

Item # 691001

December 22, 1798

FELIX FARLEY'S BRISTOL JOURNAL, England, Dec. 22, 1798  

* Lord Horatio Nelson victorious
* Battle of the Nile
* Napoleon Bonaparte

The masthead features a handsome engraving.
The front page  begins with a nice, 1 1/2 column article: "Buonaparte & The Egyptian Expedition--The fate of the French Expedition to Egypt Appears to be at Length Finally Decided by the Death of Buonaparte & the Massacre of the greater part of his Army." What follows is much detail on the Egyptian campaign by Napoleon, but he did not die until 1805 at the Battle of Trafalgar.
This report carries over to the back page which also is found a letter signed in type: Horatio Nelson.
Four pages, never-trimmed margins, nice condition. Red tax stamp on the back page.
