The PBS listing is for a Large Print edition, so the members who posted the non-Large Print edition under this ISBN posted it incorrectly.  They should have posted it as a Book Without An ISBN, even though it has one, since their edition didn't match the PBS listing.

I found this ISBN listed as Large Print elsewhere as well, so I submitted an edit to add Large Print designation to the title, and hopefully that will cut down on the members posting it incorrectly, so when you order it next time, hopefully it will be the Large Print edition you desire...

When I search either of the ISBNs shown on Amazon, it gives no results. In searching the title and author, I can't find a Large Print version. There is a mass mkt paperback version, and then a version published by that publisher, but it has only an ASIN, no ISBN, and nowhere in the description does it say that it's a large print.

Looking at the listing as you have it copy/pasted, it almost looks like this was a book that was edited already--look at the author's name, typed as tESS mALLORY, which looks like someone had capslock on when they were editing the book information.
