According to LC Rule Interpretations for 12.3G. Successive designations:

"Rule 12.3G should be applied only after the cataloger has decided that
'a serial (record)' not 'serials (records)' is to be created based on the
following guidelines:

Two Records:
Create separate records when a serial's enumeration repeats the exact numeric
designation and the publisher DOES NOT link the old and new systems with a
designation such as 'new series' or 'second series.'


One Record:
Create a single record with appropriate notes when any of the following changes
occur in the numeric and/or chronological designations:

   3.) A serial begins again with the number '1' and the publisher links the
old and new systems with the term 'new series' or similar wording.

                Vol. 1. no. 1 (Jan. 1978)-v. 2, no. 12 (Dec. 1979) ; new ser.,
                  v. 1, no. 1 (Jan. 1980)-

If I remember the question correctly, example 3 would apply to your title.
So, all other things being equal, I believe you would treat as one title.

Since I am not familiar with the title, anyone with more information should
feel free to correct or add to this information.
