I have a document, which I want to put in the following fomrat:


Volume One: Dynamic Meteorology
Table of Contents

Volume Two: Dynamic Oceanography
Table of Contents

With apge numbering in volume two continued from volume one.

Using suggestions from various posts on the subject, and particularly this Splitting one volume into two

my document loses the Preface, Introduction and table of contents. Instead I have:

Volume One

volume one
volume two

blank page

Volume Two

volume one
volume two
blank page

Switching to memoir class as suggested on the above posts, gives errors which are difficult to understand.

Help will be appreciated.

Following comment from @Carlisle I think I can go with \part{partname}, it is better in that it has no volume one, volume two repeated on the same page. However I still get blank table of contents and blank pages after table of contents (title only), after preface,after introduction and after each page of part1 and part 2. Here is the structure after \begin{document}:


{\normalfont\Large\bfseries\color{blue}}{\chaptertitlename\ \thechapter:} {1em}{} \input{Chapters/TitlePage} \pagenumbering{roman}



\part{Dynamic Meteorology}

\part{Dynamic Oceanography}

  • I was looking for simply "latex tag" but the suggested tags were coming in combinations: lualatex, xetex, ... – Zilore Mumba Apr 16 at 7:50
  • Thanks. I changed the posting's tag to "book-design". – Mico Apr 16 at 8:10
  • use the command \part to separate your volumes (you can redefine \partname to Volume – David Carlisle Apr 16 at 9:01
