    Arrow Punctuation with books and its names?

    My new question (which I have lOOts of ) is conserning punctuation.

    'The palace is included into a ten-volume encyclopedia (?) The world's architecture'.

    What shall I put there to part the common noun from its proper name?

    By the way, is the article a used correctly here? I feel like using 'the'. The thing confusing me is that the attribute 'ten-volume' has a descriptive meaning, and I was taught that in this case the indefinite article is used. But on the other hand, I have the only one encyclopedia named 'The world's architecture'. So, I'm really puzzled now

    NOT A TEACHER.

    I think there are several possibilities here.

    "The palace is included in the ten-volume encyclopedia The World's Architecture."

    "The palace is included in a ten-volume encyclopedia, The World's Architecture."

    "The palace is included in The World's Architecture, a ten-volume encyclopedia."
