I don't know that this will help, but I think those resources are also
loaded into Jisc historical texts at https://historicaltexts.jisc.ac.uk --
I think that there is an elasticsearch index underpinning the collections
in JHT -- You don't say what you would like to extract from the data, but
someone at JHT might be able to help? Might be worth dropping a line to the
JHT enquiries address, YMMV tho.
