I'd like to add, that, at least, parts of the same scans
are available from the so called "Universal Library" (the
former "Million Books Project") via www.archive.org.
There, the works are provided completely in a graphical
format (as DjVu or PDF). It is possible to download them
in toto via FTP (generally a zip archive of the originial
TIFFs as well as DjVu, PDF). If possible they seem to add
a plain text version produced by OCR software (I assume
this will not work properly on non-latin based scripts).
The "Universal Library" is hosted by the Carnegie Mellon
University. By the way, they have a companion web site of
their own under the URL:
There you'll find some background information and a
similar page-per-page viewing interface of the scans like
that of the DLI in Hyderabad. The search function is
rather bad, too, and cannot be trusted.
All the best
