Select all files in the book but your first chapter and use File >
Select page layouts (and whatever else you want to import) and go for
it. That gets the master pages into each chapter file.
However, if the recipient pages have not been set up to use "first,"
after the import, you will have to open each one to the first page and
do Format > Page Layout > Master Page Usage > "first" in order to have
them recognize the new master page.
