Baerenreiter according to amazon
Samwise (never heard of them). Here perhaps the prelude is poor evidence, as some of the rest is perhaps over-edited. (you'll need to look inside at the preview)
And Anna Magdalena Bach's transcription from IMSLP.
And it all seems to be about interpreting her obviously abbreviated slurs - literal/slightly abbreviated (as in the Baerenreiter) or very abbreviated (as in the Samwise).
Baerenreiter have a huge reputation, but I'd go for Samwise initially, cross-referencing with IMSLP. And I'd be very interested to chase up all the other original MSS to see where other things may be more abbreviated than people realise (there's the famous bourée for example from Suzuki 3, which has some disputed bowings, if we can judge from the online pdf that's floating around)
