I am particularly looking for his autobiographical work -The
reminiscences- which I didn't get in Gutenberg.

The Project Gutenbberg offers significantly, as it contains a good 
collection of Tagore in English, including, among others, the English 
rendering of his novel "the Home and the World" and "Gitanjali", one of
his 
poetic masterpieces. One may search and find more. But I don't think
there 
is any possibility of the availability of all his works rendered in
English, 
because many of his works have been recently translated and are not 
copyright free. The latest of such I've come across to is his short
story 
collections edited by Sukanta Chadhuri which came in as late as the year

2000.
