It is clear that all were disturbed by the notation of the original edition and felt that it needed modification. Two opt for downward stems on the pickup notes, possibly without knowledge of the MS. And all changed the starting point of the slur in measure 1:

i don't think behind bars or any engraving book is enough in this world of engraving .. beautiful art indeed

Hello odod,
It seems very beautiful, especially I think G-Clef pretty nice!
I like also Schirmers Style.

Would you like sell it sometime??

This is Sibelius sir
i rarely uses finale, since it has different learning curve with Sibelius :(
i was hoping that Dorico would be a combination of both .. but it turns Dorico has its own workaround ..that's why i am still holding myself to buy Dorico

For me, G. Schirmer (plate engraved) has the warmest appearance of any publisher and are some of the most beautiful ever produced. But most of the editions they offered were non-authentic and this has given them a bad rep. But now that musicians have direct access to primary sources and can make their own decisions about the text—if used properly, these editions deserve study because they document the performance practices of many fine musicians of the past. And the engraving has always deserved study.

agree, all my piano books when i was in college primarily was Schirmer's edition .. look sharp and bold, but somehow the spacing is too tight for my eyes :(
