Subject:        Lear: Macready or Kean?

When did Shakespeare's "original" text of King Lear replace Nahum Tate's
revised version on the English stage?  Gary Taylor in "Reinventing
Shakespeare" says Macready did it in 1838, but Richard Altick in "The
English Common Reader" says it was Kean in 1823.  Thank you.
