does "volume" mean "notebook?" In Holy Trinity's rectory Father Huber opened a shabby black leather volume whose spine bore the gold lettering, "Sick Call Register." The pages were ruled and labeled, like a ledger. Under "Date" he wrote "11-22-63"; under "Name," "Pres. John Kennedy"; under "Residence," "Parkland Hospital." Ministrations were "Cond. abs., cond. ex., Last B."— conditional absolution, Extreme Unction, last blessing. The last column, on the far right, was headed "Remarks." Usually it was left blank, but he felt this occasion required at least one remark. He thought and thought and then made the simple entry, "Assassinated in Downtown Dallas."

In this case, yes, volume is referring to a notebook of sorts.
