Parker & Joshua,
You are both correct the illustration on the front page is indeed the Pirrie family crest and the ornate box just visable to the right and slightly forward of the book is the presentation box minus the lid which is probably just out of shot. The lid itself was a "lift off" type and not hinged to the casket itself which was lined with blue velvet cloth.
Regretably on each occasion I have enquired I have been unable to obtain a definitive answer as to the whereabouts of this artifact, the replies usually offered being "we think it's locked up somewhere" or "we think it's with Fred Olsen" or "we think it's in the boardroom"
I must point out that as a former employee the company has absolutely no obligation or reason to provide me with this or any information and would do so mearly as a courtesy.
It was like that when I got here
