First movement incomplete

Possibly first published in the Peters Organ works series? Peter Williams (The Organ Music of J. S. Bach, from p.196) gives for sources, as the autograph does not survive-

"complete in P 287 (J P Kellner, after 1727?); also, via CPE Bach (P290, P277?, Am.B59?), and [a] lost MS used in Peters I; first movement only [survives] in copies via Kittel(?)" (note: the Darmstadt digitized collection, of works by JS and CPE Bach, is possibly one of the above- P290, P277 or Am.B59?)

(Not the only work in regards to which Williams mentions the possibility that Griepenkerl may have used a source in preparing his edition that is now lost. This is also possible in regards several of Rust's editions for the BGA but with Rust as editor other issues arise.)
