In my bibliography a book has been published in a few volumes across different years, and I need to cite some of such volumes. Other books have been published in several volumes in the same year.
This kind of sources is somehow unusual for me. Say, with a joking choice of fields:
The re-discovery of the countryside in the early Pleistocene
Volumes 361,362,363 of the Futuristic Agriculture Series
Published in 1965(2nd ed),1953,1957
The work is divided into three volumes I, II, III numbered 361 through 363 in a series.
Sometimes I would want a citation for the entire set (to introduce the overall effort of Mr Mouse perhaps), some other times a citation to a single volume (for the foreword and plan of work here, for a specific chapter there).
The brute-force, article-like approach would be to create an item for each volume. This would lead to a rather lengthy list, accurate but repetitious.
Are there BibTeX coding options to get a shorter list in the References --- basically one item contains author, work, number of volumes and respective years --- and yet accurate references in the body of the text -- say a tag that specifies a particular volume and year?
Any suggestion for best practices and implementations?
