For the avoidance of doubt, since Amazon's listing is not entirely clear, this is the tie-in BBC books edition of the play which was published to accompany the Complete Works series in the 80s.

The Introductions to volumes of Shakespeare vary hugely in their quality. This, by L A Beaurline, is one of the very best.
