    Hi Tomas, yes this is the one. I have an early edition so the cover is different. See image of the first page.

    I find that Edson Lopes' editions are quite excellent, they are as faithful as possible while being as idiomatic as possible (as much as this very difficult suite can be).... He provides his transcription of this free at the following site: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/13zk2iO1usFQYYVoM290l8oFaeoGbKcA2

    I have used the Sharon Isben / Rosalind Tureck edition for years. Isbin was the first guitarist that I heard using cross string trills in an elaborate way. It was an eye (ear?) opening experience for me. I currently am also using the version in Frank Koonce's edition of the Bach Lute suites. Both have extensive notes and written out embellishments. Isbin also includes a facsimile of the Gerber edition (a contemporary of Bach) which is the primary source for the suite.

    Tilman Hoppstock has a 3 volumes study on the Lute Works of Bach which is quite extensive and well researched. They are fairly expensive, about $70 each, but also include  CDs of the examples used in the books.  You can get them at Strings by Mail or at Prim Musickverlag (Hoppstock's publishing company, I believe)

    https://www.prim-verlag.de/welcome-at-prim-musikverlag-darmstadt.

    He also has performing editions of all of the suites at around $15. I just saw those while researching my answer here. It is a bit confusing to find them. Click on the 'Solo' tab at top of page and select Bach Lautenwerke(b) for the performing editions. The entire site, however, is with exploring. I might get the Hoppstock edition as I really like his playing and the BWV 996 is my favorite suite.

    Since I am rambling on....

    My favorite performance of the BWV996 suite is Marcin Dylla - especially his Courrante, and David Russell. There are others but I can't think of them right now.
