Materials relating to the translation, editing and publication of the Standard Edition. The works, published jointly by the Hogarth Press and the Institute of Psychoanalysis, were translated from German texts under the general editorship of James Strachey in collaboration with Anna Freud and assisted by Alix Strachey and Alan Tyson. The final volume, number XXIV, Indexes and Bibliographies, was compiled by Angela Harris (née Richards) in collaboration with Alix Strachey. Many of the draft materials and notes are undated but, in the main, the Standard Edition project was carried out between 1949 and 1966, with the exception of Volume XXIV which was published in 1974.
