And not only for the introduction - Dobb collaborated with Sraffa in the the actual editing of Ricardo's works. They are well-known to have argued at length about the placing of commas and semicolons. That Sraffa considered himself to belong broadly to the Marxist tradition is also, or ought to be, well-known.

But Sraffa's collaborator on the introduction was
Maurice Dobb, not Meek.
