As far as I can see, the download is rather slow.
I guess you stop the download process too soon.
If the downloaded file is less than 17 MB, then it is not complete.
If I give it some time (1 or 2 minutes?), then the pdf is readable,
also in Evince.

Downloads from archive.org have always been slow for me, but, once downloaded, the linked file opens normally in evince.
