It says in the description that it is Large Print but it also says mass market paperback which is usually reg print

I wouldn't take a description as correct for all editions on something like that. Someone could have submitted an edit because their copy was Large Print and the approver just didn't catch that.

Any time you want to be sure you get a Large Print - set up an RC before requesting it.

According to Amazon, this is a MMP, and NOT Large Print.  It's showing the Large Print version to only be available as a hardcover with the ISBN  9780786210398.  Hope this helps!

Sometimes you can tell by the publisher.
