There are three versions of CITY. The magazine version was 8 separate stories set in the same timeline. The 1952 novel spliced the stories with a frame. And the 1973 version added a ninth story; Epilog.

The outfit in question might be legally publishing the 8 short stories but without the framing segments it wouldn't really be the "novel" that buyers expect. At that price, I'd call that intentionally misleading = sleazy.
