We have found a copy of this document in some old family photos. Included is a newspaper cutting fcreferring to Napoleon's bearers. Apparently Matthew Grimes who is buried at Thornton Dale near Pickering has a tombstone with the inscription "Guard at at St Helena over Napoleon and a bearer of that Monarch to his grave" The copy of the booklet appears very old (but I am no judge) it is not professionally bound but is held together by some red thread. The illustrations are smaller than the rest of the pages.
