I have Schubert Eight Impromptus Op 90/142 and Sonata A Major Op 120 on 
Westminister WAL 205. Paul Badura-Skoda. Copyright 1952. Made in USA.

"Natural Balance", same as the eBay example you cite.

It includes 2 LPs in a 78 style album, not a box, and a third half 
pocket containing a mini score of the Urtext edition published by Lea 
Pocket Scores (name in small print). At first I thought the owner had 
created this, but the little score clearly shows that it belongs to this 
set - "WAL 205" and "Westminister Recording Co." and address on the 
cover of the score (in large print). Incidentally, the score has "75c" 
at the top so it may have also been available separately.

This is the only example of a score included with the records that I 
have ever seen (except for Music Minus One LPs). The Bruckner example 
did not come with a score - maybe a copyright issue.
