Most IMSLP versions seem to have a large number of typos - missing accidentals, notes that are off by a third on the staff, missing 8va marks, missing "D.C." markings, etc. The Dover collection (with page numbers 110-123) is typical of this poor editing.

The earliest copy on IMSLP is from 1894 and is much cleaner, but it's also incomplete. It has a note that says "Contained preliminary version of valse no. 1~4 only."

I know there are editions by Kalamus and Salabert but haven't seen them.
FJH Classic Editions has the best edition of the Valse Poeticos. https://www.fjhmusic.com/piano/display.php?item=H1008

It's not a free edition, but it's very well notated. Make sure to check out the preview images.

Thanks Ivesman. I'm still hoping for a decent free version, but I appreciate the link if I end up having to buy it.
