Which of the following do you recommend?

Isn't Editio Musica Budapest the best just for its comprehensive survey?

Some of the EMB Edition books are too thick and it impossible to keep them flat on the piano.

Probably the best and most comprehensive though.

They do offer individual extractions from the editions, at least in the US but with a hideous green cover.

I've used the Henle edition of the Transcendental Etudes and they are just beautiful...clean, clear notation and spacing.
