The bibliography database is one of the pillars of the §Store.
It lists published and unpublished publications.
Usually, a bibliography contains mostly published titles. In our case, given the special nature of the works of Sri Chinmoy, most of the bibliography entries are unpublished titles.
Even in case of a series published a book at a time, we need to be able to refer to it as a whole, self-standing series, independently from its past publications.
As an example, let us consider
Ten thousand Flower-Flames.
As a series of published books, each book will have its reference-key a.k.a
The series needs to be referenced as a whole too.
In that case, its reference key will be simply
FF, which means:
FF: Sri Chinmoy, Ten thousand Flower-Flames (vols 1-100), Agni Press, New York, 1979-1983
The Store uses an entry like above as the main reference, not the records of each individual part.
