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.
Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.
Copyright
Misc. Notes If the cover or inner title page of the book excerpted here has "1957" (does it?), then "n.d.(1957)" is incorrect; one can't scan the inner pages of a book with a valid copyright and then claim "n.d." because one has only scanned the inner pages (US copyright law doesn't require that every single last page have a copyright notice, just the cover page and/or the inner title and/or the last page- or somewhere appropriate. (Though ultimately what matters is valid renewal anyway.)
