In your master tex file which you call volume1.tex put something like

\usepackage[top=2.5cm,bottom=2.5cm,left=2.5cm,right=2.5cm]{geometry} %
Sets paper size, margins, etc
% "Geometry.cfg" selects A4 paper

And separately edit the geometry.cfg file to whatever size paper you are
%% This is file `geometry.cfg',
%% generated with the docstrip utility.
%% The original source files were:
%% geometry.dtx  (with options: `config')
%% File: geometry.dtx Copyright (C) 1996-2000 Hideo Umeki

%% End of file `geometry.cfg'.

You can dispense with the CFG file if you so wish and embed A4 or letter
or whatever in your master tex file
