I'm using the Harvard referencing system where you include the author, year and page number in brackets after using a thinkers work. How would I reference a sentence that's within a compilation of an authors work rather than the original book? I want to use a quote from Freud's Totem and Taboo, however the version of Totem and Taboo I'm reading comes from a selection of Freud's writing called Freud: The Origins of Religion. The quote I'm using would likely come from page 2 of the original but is on page 54 of the version I'm using. Would the reference be (Freud, 1913: 2), (Freud, 1985: 54) or something else?

The latter of the two. Then reference it as a section in a collection when it comes to the bibliog: Freud, blah blah blah in xyz (eds.) Freud: The origins of Religion.., etc

Obviously fill it out and italicise where necessary.
