This work is likely not in the public domain in the US (due to first publication with the required notice after 1925, plus renewal or "restoration" under the GATT/TRIPS amendments), nor in the EU and those countries where the copyright term is life+70 years. However, it is public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and in other countries (China, Hong Kong, New Zealand) where the copyright term is life+50 years.

Somewhat more recent edition with interesting preface (discusses history of work. For perusal)
Recipient of the 1947 Pulitzer Prize for Music.
"1901-12" dates: according to preface, the work originated (as prototypes) in three organ works (no longer in existence) first performed by Ives between May and December 1901. Sketches from around 1902 do exist elaborating this material symphonicaly, and "in 1904 he completed a full pencil score of the Third Symphony". He revised this in 1909, and a copy of this was made in 1911 (the 1909 score has been lost-- see link...) - so that the extent of any differences - if there are any- between the 1909 and 1911 versions cannot be determined now). The dates 1901-12 are Ives' own, but 1901-11 may also work from this information, with the understanding that the version we actually have is probably the 1904 version and the later (1909) versions are probably lost. The premiere ultimately was made from the 1904 manuscript, copied out and parts extracted by the conductor.
