It seems like you are using trial version of the API and due to its restriction, you cannot process more than 4 elements of any collection (Page, Annotation, etc.). Please try using the valid license while using the API and if you do not have one, you can apply for free 30-days temporary license and use it. In case you face some issue, please feel free to let us know.
