Torrent attached as zip-file. When you launch the torrent, you have the option to select particular volumes for download (in total the size is almost 12 GB).

In case it doesn't work, here's the site where I took it from (requires sign-up): http://kinozal.tv/details.php?id=1200774 (Second and third edition linked there too)

The volumes are OCR'd, so you can copy-paste texts into an e-translation site.

Volume 4, for example contains such entries as 'Afghanistan', 'Atom', 'Butterfly', 'Bakunin', 'Balance of payments' (written by Dvolajtskij), 'Banknote', 'Barricade'.

Lol... didn't download all this but it turns out there's an android app of it also. Here's part of the entry for "anarchism", translated by google

Quote:
Anarchism
(from Greek. anarchia - anarchy), petty-bourgeois sociopolitical movement, hostile to proletarian scientific socialism. A.'s main idea is to deny all state power and to preach the unlimited freedom of each individual person.

Still neat nonetheless as far as historical texts go, but I think I'll be sticking with Wikipedia...
