Modernist Cuisine
An overview of the techniques of modern gastronomy. Nathan Myhrvold, Chris Young, and Maxime Bilet -- scientists, inventors, and accomplished cooks in their own right -- have created a six-volume 2,400 page set that reveals science-inspired techniques for preparing food. The authors and their 20 person team at The Cooking Lab have achieved new flavors and textures by using tools such as water baths, homogenizers, centrifuges, and ingredients such as hydrocolloids, emulsifiers, and enzymes.

This should be listed as 6 separate records, not one. The volumes seem to be loaned out individually, not together.

There are several volumes, but which one?
I tried to hold the first, then second, volume, but they won't allow a hold.
