It is up to you, really. According to the item description, Volume 3 should also come with the newspapers for volume 1 and 2 and the community here is really great for filling in the blanks for the missing curios.
Volume 4 and each issue within is standalone and solvable by themselves. There are some "Easter eggs" that do tie them in to the larger story, but aren't critical for puzzle solving.
I personally would recommend volume 3. Then get volume 4 later if you want.

If you buy Volume 3 - you get all the newspaper issues from Volumes 1 & 2. You just don't get the curios...but the pictures and information you need is on the C&C Wiki. So you get everything you need if you buy Volume 3. Skip Volume 4...not worth the money.
The best of C&C was in Volumes 1-3 and you can have the whole adventure for the low price. Just need to refer to pictures of the SOME of the curios on the Wiki.
100% worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have established my place in the puzzle-solving pecking order for Vaults 1, 2 & 3.

Hi there! I too am late to the party but stumbled across the podcast that Scott and Katie put together while researching MPC experiences. I’ve been mulling over getting the Vol 3 set since that one seems to have more layers and an overarching storyline. Came to the forum loking for an answer to this question guess I’ll be diving in and I’m so glad this forum exists because it looks like there used to be a substantial collaboration element.
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
