Could someone suggest a nice reading edition of Henry James's The Ambassadors

It doesn’t have to be in print, but it should have good textual authority.
Also - doesn’t have to have been “edited” – notes, intro, etc. - but it could be. Also, could be paper or hardcover.
As a bonus -- is there an (online) source for respected opinions on recommended editions of the classics? I used to own a book (a sort of "guide to world literature") that recommended particular editions to read. It's probably long out of print.
When I was more current in academia, I knew that there were generally accepted opinions about such things -- or at least, the field was narrowed down to two or three editions.
