This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. 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’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. More information about this can be found here.

According to Grove Music, Handel's keyboard works were "all probably for harpsichord and written before 1720, unless otherwise stated". Since there is nothing else stated for this particular work, it was undoubtedly for harpsichord.
