The example uses 500:

         (recursive-factorial 500)

The following paragraph, however, uses 1000:

      In this example we did some simple arithmetic `(+ 20 35)' and got the
    answer `55'.  Then we coded the classic (and rather wasteful) factorial
    algorithm, and got a glimpse of Scheme's nice _bignumbers_ by asking
    for the factorial of 1000.  Then we quit with `(quit)'.
