I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.

URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Notes Based on 1952 ed. of G. Neuhaus and Vladimir Belov (1906—1989)
NB. This edition contains some notation errors: The "8" sign under a note always means "add the lower octave" in Liszt's notation. For example, the last note of the sonata should not be removed and placed one octave lower, as rendered in this edition, but the right way is to merely add the lower octave, thus ending the sonata in an octave chord. (cf. Henle editions)
