Where did you find a 2023 edition deluxe?

I bought it from Kennys (, a month and a half ago. It was a sort of gamble, as they (although very kind!) cannot check the copyright page as the book is sealed. But I suppose they only have the new editions in stock now, and no longer the 2019 ones.
Prices on the site fluctuate - when I purchased it, the price was around 40 euros.
