Identifying a Spanish-Suited 40-Card Deck

I found an old deck of cards in my grandfather's garage and I'm not sure how the game is played. I have attached a picture of the deck and it has 40 cards in total. Who knows maybe it's a collectors item. Thanks

It seeems to be an old Spanish deck. Most popular games are played with 40 cards: 1 to 7 and "sota" (10), "caballo" (11) and "rey" (12), discarding numbers 8 and 9.
The Cadiz pattern was not very used here in Spain but these drawings are perfectly recognizable.
