I recently purchased this from a shop in Barcelona
http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/208/jp1c.jpg

The shop, which has several for sale, said it had been published by Comas. Another is available on ebay and that vendor says it was published by Fournier. A search of English and Spanish language sites doesn't show it as having been published by either. All the copies for sale are without a box or LWB.

As you see, it's a copy of the Kier pack, but with colour changes. I wonder if it's a pirate edition?

One strange feature is that the bottom panels on the World and the Fool have been transposed. The new publisher evidently knew enough to find the Fool as 22 odd and decided to "correct" it to 21, French-style, but not enough to alter the symbols in the top panel to match. The titles didn't help, as the World is "Transmutacion" and the Fool is "Regreso".

Does anyone know any more about this? Has anyone ever seen it earlier than 2013?

I haven't seen the images from the Kindle edition. Could someone have printed those on card stock? Is it the same as this one, purportedly 1988, on eBay: http://tinyurl.com/l9lyo7p

No, that's the Margarita Arnal Moscardo one. It's inspired by the Kier, but the images are often changed and there are no planetary sigils or hieroglyphs at the top. You can see a good range of Egyptian-style designs here:
