I'm ploughing through "Little Anna Magdelina's Notebook" and do not have
a decent copy of the Aria from the Goldberg variations.

Does anyone here have a favorite version with good editing and perhaps
fingering guides too?

Hi Gene,
Many, many people will argue that you should read early music like
Bach from an unedited Urtext edition (like G. Henle Verlag, for
instance) but if you are looking for editorial remarks and fingerings
specifically than you should look for an Alfred edition (which are
usually for younger students) or Shirmer. These are usually pretty
heavily edited (annoyingly so, for my taste ;), but the fingerings can
be helpful.
Cheers!
