I am writing a book that I will publish in two separate volumes. In volume 1, I want the table of contents to show the full list of chapters for volume 1 and volume 2, however I do not want volume 2 chapters to be included in published version of volume 1. How do I remove the chapters from volume 2 without removing the chapter titles for volume 2 from the table of contents in volume 1 ?

You can do like this main.tex

\documentclass{book}
% packages

\begin{document}
\input{volumeI}
\input{volumeII}
\end{document}


volumeI.tex

bla bla
\tableofcontents
bla bla
\chapter{Foo}
bla bla


volumeII.tex

bla bla
\tableofcontents
bla bla
\chapter{Foo}
bla bla


compile main.tex as necessary and then comment %\input{volumeII} and recompile once.
