1973 Pop-out card of Ivan Krylov's "Quartet."  Artist: B. Andreveo.  Mapisha: Ezdatelvstvo Knuska.  Rostov-on-Don.  $5 from Valentina Kudinova, Kharkiv, Ukraine, through eBay, Nov., '11.

One of the recurrent mysteries for a collector is: "What was this object made for?"  Here is a wonderfully pleasant and creative presentation of Krylov's "Quartet" with a cover, a canvas binding, and two pages that spread out to let the musicians find their space.  Of course, in this fable they never do!  The text is on the back cover, along with way too much bibliographical information!
