The History of King Lear,: a tragedy, acted at the King's-Theatre, reviv'd with alterations


This book is a 1736 printing of Nahum Tates adaptation of Shakespeare's 'King Lear,' originally published in 1681. The work contains many of Shakespeare's original lines, but it also includes new material and makes major alterations to the plot. This version largely superceded Shakespeare's version from its first staging into the 19th century.
