THE former Edition of this work having been very generally approved, I have endeavoured, by a careful revision, to render the present Edition no less deserving of the public approbation. In the subject, I have made such alterations as I conceived would tend to the general improvement of the piece ; and the numerous additions which I have made to the

Annotations, will not, I hope, deprive this portion of the work of the favour with which it has hitherto

been honoured.

The Annotations having been very currently attributed to one of our most esteemed dramatists, I feel it incumbent upon me, in justice to the gentleman alluded to, to declare, that I am alone responsible for all their defects
