In my paper I want to refer to different sections out of one book. This book is already a bibitem. Now, for example, I want to refer to §1.2 p.55, §2.5 p.144 and §3.9 p.200. How to make this happen in a thebibliography environment without mentioning the whole author+book+publisher for all the references? Example:

\begin{thebibliography}{9}
\bibitem{1}
John A. Rice, Mathematical Statistics and Data Analysis Third Edition,Duxbury Advanced Series (2007)
\bibitem{2} §1.2 p.55
\bibitem{3} §2.5 p.144
\bibitem{4} §3.9 p.200

\bibitem{5}
Alvin C. Rencher, Linear Models in Statistic; Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics (2000)

\begin{thebibliography}{9}

This is a possibility but not a very nice one. Is there a more elegant solution?

  • Can you give an example of what you have so far in the shape of an MWE? I'm a bit confused because you have it over bibitems and thebibliography, but your question is tagged biblatex and enumerate. – moewe Nov 11 '15 at 10:36
  • I inserted a possible solution, but not a very elegant one – iJup Nov 11 '15 at 10:54
  • I re-tagged your question as it is not about biblatex at all, but I still don't quite get what you try to get at. – moewe Nov 11 '15 at 10:58

You can add extra information in a citation with e.g. \cite[\S1.2]{1}.

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
We refer to \cite[\S1.2 p.55]{Rice07}, and later \cite[\S2.5 p.144, \S3.9 p200]{Rice07}.

\begin{thebibliography}{9}
\bibitem{Rice07}
John A. Rice, Mathematical Statistics and Data Analysis Third Edition, Duxbury Advanced Series (2007)
\bibitem{Rencher00}
Alvin C. Rencher, Linear Models in Statistic; Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics (2000)
\end{thebibliography}
 \end{document}

cite example

If it's sections with different authors, there's a solution using Bibtex for this question How to cite a book chapter written by an author that is not the editor or author of the book with BibTeX?. Bibtex also has crossref to reference other bib entries.
