URTEXT EDITION 
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.

Misc. Comments

NMA online gives "between 1775 and 1777", but there may be more recent scholarship. Several but not all of the movements (and with the Credo incomplete...) published in score by Breitkopf by 1803 (see NMA report, p. c/12 et seq.)
