There are roughly 561,792

How did I come up with that?
Number of lines per average page of type = 44
Number of characters per average line of type = 63
Divide 63 by 6 (Average word being 6 characters long) = 10.5
Multiply Lines by words (44 X 10.5) = 462

Now
Multiply number of words per page (462) by number of pages (1,216) = 561,792

It's only a rough estimate, but it gets you in the right ball park. The only way to know for sure is to count each word in the text. I used the 50th anniversary one volume edition for my calculation.

An electronic copy, including all headers, indices and appendixes shows 525,405.
