According to this list

spells. From just those two books. Of course, those are the two books with the most spells, but still. Every splatbook added at least a dozen new spells, with rare exception, so that list could be much, much higher. For instance, the ELH added the non-epic spell genesis
to the SRD. And here are 11 more spells
that ended up in the SRD, from god knows where (Deities & Demigods
? I dunno, whatever). So that at least 1,618 to look over. Good luck.
