No autograph copy of Bach's suites for the violoncello has ever been found. The Bach-Gesellschaft edition is based on a manuscript written by Anna Magdalena Bach's second wife and on another written by Johann Peter Kellner one of Bach's contemporaries. It also uses some of the earliest published editions. But these scores differ at certain points.

So let me give you one fmal example which will illustrate the point I have in mind. Of course this may not persuade anyone.
