[b-greek] Tischendorf reprint?!

The following listing just showed up on Amazon.com. Does anyone know
anything about this "reprint"? I am extremely skeptical, not only due to
the "tone" of the publishers blurb, but also that it lists it as only "430
pages"--the original is 2 vols. of 968 and 1044 pgs. each! A web search
turns up nothing for "Pierson Publishing Group," and no name or contact
info is given.

>After more than 100 years of silence,
>this Koine Greek Text of the New Testament[formally known as the Editio
>Octava Critica Major in scholarly literature]is the 8th Critical Edition
>(1871) of Tischendorf, the high point of his career, and the text cited by
>all Biblical scholars - (pro and con) - after him. Tischendorf was the first
>to use the ancient texts of the Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus and
>incorporate his information into a Greek New Testament. No Pastor or priest
>has ever passed a Greek course without substantive references to this
>edition. Finally, this edition coveted by scholars and unavailable to the
>public is now available at a price affordable for Seminary Students, Bishops
>and Pastors alike. Find out what changes were made between the 8th Edition
>and the UBS or Nestle-Aland text. Find the proof for yourself and put your
>Greek knowledge and professors to the test. Something no Professor or
>Student of Biblical/Koine Greek should be without.
