New Chinese-English Parallel Bible for Catholics

From the National Catholic Register, concerning a new Chinese-English Catholic Parallel Bible.  The New Testament was published previously. (Confirmed by Mary Sperry of USCCB.)  Below are some snippets, along with a link to the full article:

All editions of the parallel translation have used the New American Bible, Revised Edition, and the Chinese translations are those of Blessed Gabriele M. Allegra, a “determined” Italian priest who produced the first Chinese Bible translation in 1968 after a 40-year collaboration with scholars and translators.

Just a note -- this is not a full Bible, but just the Old Testament.

If anyone has an ISBN for this volume, I would be most grateful.
