Box has one slightly bruised corner but paper is not torn and is barely visible. The fold-over flap of the box was glued with the book new inside and when the flap was lifted to get the book out, it left some small pieces of flap cardboard stuck to the box back and it also pulled and tore, in 3 visible places, the inner layer of cardboard on the 1 3/4 inch W flap. When the box is closed and taped shut, this is not visible at all, but when the box flap is open it is visible because the inside of the box is white but where the top layer of paper is torn off it is cardboard colour. This area where the glue stuck to the inner layer of flap paper does not affect in any way the exterior flap paper, which is clean, white and glossy. . Vintage
