You can use XInclude to bring in each of the chapters

<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.4//EN" 
    "http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.4/docbookx.dtd"; [
<!ENTITY % xinclude SYSTEM '../libs/xinclude.mod'>

Process your first stage with xmllint and arguments --xinclude --noent

This will give you a single XML instance containing all XInclude or Entities 

Ask me about the Monkey.
