Procedure for reassembling individual chapters

Nearing end of a 3+ year-long endeavor constructing a new edition of a well known '50s architectural tome, now illustrated and annotated with support of the architect's son. After undergoing a file corruption issue a few months ago, the book has been deconstructed into its 40-odd individual chapters from the original one file.

I haven't experience recombining from multiple files like this, as I've long worked on single-file constructions, wisely or not, never getting into ID's book feature. Overwhelmed by the dissertation-level effort invested in this over years, I must seek instruction now on how to cope with reassably from separate files. How's it done?

You don't have to - as @rob day suggested, use Book feature to "bind" them together - then you can export one big PDF.
