I think it should be "2nd 100 pages," not "2nd 1000 pages." If it were so, it would be a valuable resource; as is, you might as well download Project Gutenberg's thoroughly unreadable version. At least, it is complete.
This is no where near the first 1000 pages, and the second 1000 pages consists of less than 300 pages! Don't bother to download. At least Project Gutenberg has the whole 1913 edition, even if it is practically unreadable.
It has only the first one hundred pages, not 1000. The second volume contains another 100. The two volumes only cover from 'A'- 'Cabinet'

In iSilo version, the entires (words) are broken with all sort of signs, such as tabs and punctuations.

It is a pity...great dictionary but useless for now.
