SHAKSPEARE'S GENIUS JUSTIFIED ;

BEING RESTORATIONS AND ILLUSTRATIONS OF SEVEN HUNDRED PASSAGES OF SHAKSPEARE; which have afforded abundant scope for critical animadversion, and hitherto held at defiance the penetration of all Shakspeare's Commentators. By Z. JACKSON.

The speedy sale of a Publication stamps, in a great degree, its merits-Two editions of the Pamphlet published as a specimen of the above Restorations, &c. having been sold, each in the course of a few weeks, the Author returns his most grateful thanks for so unequivocal a mark of public approbation, as it adds confidence to his hopes, that the Work at large, as now published, will be found highly essential to all persons possessing any edition of Shakspeare whatever; whilst, as an independent volume, it may prove equally acceptable to the general reader, who cannot, he trusts, but be highly gratified with these newly discovered Beauties in the Works of our Immortal Bard. Printed for JOHN MAJOR, 18, Skinner-Street, London.
