Publisher. Info. Munich: G. Henle Verlag, 1971. Plate HN 1102.
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 Scanned at 600 dpi. Page size is 31 cm × 23.5 cm.
Link to this edition on Henle's website.
Because the editor's preface is dated 1971, the uploader believes the 2008 copyright date on the first page is bogus.
