These should definitely all be in one ebook. If you want to work on it
together, then I suppose you could give it a shot. This would be the
first ebook done by more than one person. I think you will have to
carefully maneuver things like spelling modernization across the whole
ebook, not just your parts. For example if you find an old spelling of a
word in part 11, you have to make sure part 1 is updated too. Merge
conflicts might be difficult. But, we can try it and see where it goes.
