Help! What Edition of The Double Falsehood To Use

Yesterday I got a question from Sara, a university student from Italy, who asked for my help.  She's going to be translating Theobald's The Double Falsehood (sometimes known as Shakespeare's Cardenio) and wanted to know what print editions were in existence -- available for purchase online --  that had a particularly good "critic preface."  I'm not sure exactly what she means by that, but I think she means that she doesn't mind an edition that is more on the academic side with lots of editorial comments.  Not a mass market thing.

Does anybody have experience in this area?  Fiona, I know you're out there someplace and you mentioned that you'd be teaching the text.  Do you have a favorite version you'll be using?

Thanks everybody!
