Angela Richards

[SEXixa2]When James Strachey died, on 25 April 1967, translation of the Freud texts was complete and the first twenty-three volumes of the Standard Edition were in print. There remained only the task of compiling Volume XXIV, which it was planned would contain a complete set of indexes and bibliographies for the whole edition. Mr. Strachey had favoured a number of indexes rather than a huge and heterogeneous Subject Index and had sketched out how he thought the material could best be divided. In preliminary talks with me he had said that he wished me to carry out the plan in detail and to compile these indexes. After Mr. Strachey's death, I agreed to a proposal of the Publications Committee of the Institute of Psycho-Analysis that I should continue and complete Mr. Strachey's work.

[SEXixa3]Contents of this Volume

[SEXixa4]Each of the preceding volumes I to XXIII has had its own Subject Index, and its own combined Bibliography and Author Index. The present volume represents, in the first place, a combination and rearrangement of the material contained in these earlier indexes and bibliographies. Secondly, it contains some entirely new matter of which the most important is the Index of Editorial Annotations, dealt with below. Thirdly, there is a list of addenda and corrigenda for the whole of the Standard Edition.

[SEXixa5]The various lists and indexes are self-contained, and their use is sufficiently indicated by their titles. A few notes of exposition, if required, are given at the beginning of each. However, some words of general explanation may not be out of place.

[SEXixa6]Contents of the Standard Edition; List of Illustrations; List of Abbreviations

[SEXixa7]These are simply cumulative lists given for ease of reference to the whole work.

[SEXixa8]Alphabetical List of Freud's Writings in the Standard Edition

[SEXixa9]This is designed to enable the reader to locate a particular work if its English title is known.

[SEXixa10]Index of Editorial Annotations

[SEXixa11]This is an entirely new Index, designed to act as a key to James Strachey's critical apparatus. It falls into three parts, dealing with the Commentaries and Annotations, the Notes on Terms and their Uses, and the Subject-Lists.
