For instance, the English translations of his foundational papers on special relativity (On the electrodynamics of moving bodies, etc.) and quantum theory between 1902-1909 (Vol. 2)

or the foundational papers on general relativity (vol. 6):

Thanks for the notice, a reminder of its announcement that I received yesterday at my local science discussion forum.

Unfortunately, he did so much interesting work on GR throughout the 20s, 30s, and 40s. I await the availability of this. Whenever I want to reference one of the few technical writing from this period I have on paper, I can never find a web link to them. When I first saw your post, I was so excited ... until I read the rest, and see that all it does is collect nicely what is already available online due to copyright expiration. Oh well.
