Default MacOS 10.9 Mavericks installer

Does anyone have (or can point me at online) an installer for MacOS Mavericks? I need it for software testing. I can only find 10.10 and above on Apple's site unless I'm being dense.

Thanks,
Pete

Thanks, can only see 10.7 and 10.8 installers. Other versions... I can only see updates. I'll have a look on the developer site.

Cheers,
Pete

A few years back, I needed a Mountain Lion 10.8 installer. I wrote to support, pleaded my case and was allowed to buy it.

They're a little reluctant to distribute old OSs, but can be convinced if you spin a good enough yarn.

No installers for anything past 10.8 which is sad so not everything is on the support page. Where DOES one go if you need say Mojave or Catalina if you never downloaded it from the App Store to begin with?


edit for additional:
I tried DuckDuck Go (I no longer use Google) to try and find a solution. Found a couple the were from Apple and following the links on said pages iTunes opens up and says both Catalina and Mojave are not available in the US store.

That only works for Maverick. I was asking about Mojave and Catalina links to installers so I can download them when I need/want to.

You can use the same site for them. Everything ever downloaded from internet is still there. Remember that when you post to Fakebook.

Okay - how do I do that? If I copy the link and try to open it in a new window it starts downloading automatically with nothing in the url bar/window. So there's no way to change it that I can see. Also when I try and save the link as a bookmark it won't save the whole link (at least not in Firefox). Why not just post the link without the fancy hyperlink footwork - IOW post it like any link normal people would post.
