What does the original Sor manuscript say (if there is such a thing as an original manuscript)?
There are virtually no surviving original manuscripts for Sor's solos, none far as I know for the studies. First or early editions are the best we can hope for, and are readily available on imslp.org or elsewhere.
I am not sure how you came to this conclusion. Starting with Opus 33 or 34 (I forget which), Sor published his own works. I have a facsimile of the original Sor publication. It has the handwritten signature of Sor on the cover, and contains the following text:
Proprieté de l'Auteur
A Paris, Chez L'Auteur, Rue du Marche St. Honoré, 34
et Chez Pacini, Boulevard des Italiènes, No 18 (the 8 is vitually illegible and might be some other number)
I counted 28 slurs in this edition of #22, not counting ties.
