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. More information about this can be found here.

Preface, translated by Jonathan Price, 2002
The first version of 1909-10 no longer exists (I think? -- ES). It is assumed that it was primarily reorchestrated in 1927-36, but the revision may have been substantially more extensive (for all one knows in the absence of a basis of comparison, of course.)
