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 1996 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.

Misc. Notes Copied from the manuscripts for solo bass and piano/orchestra. This editions takes the common elements from each manuscript while giving some extra weight to the markings of the F♯ minor piano version, since, despite its faults, it is likely the most recent version.

Solo part is transcribed to G major for performance in various tunings. The "notated octave lower" version copies Bottesini's traditional notation method of writing all the pitches an octave lower than performed. This method requires less leger lines and clef changes but requires the performer to read all notes an octave higher than printed.
The "study part" version combines all 4 manuscript versions into one system for the performer to compare the revisions made between each version at a glance. In this version, all original markings are preserved as they appear including possible wrong notes.
