And, let's not forget the single-disc operatic/vocal boxes on London
Records: Ansermet's Martyre de Ste. Sebastien (LL-1061 and OSA-1104) and
L'Enfant et les Sortileges (XLL-1180 and SR-33086) and Kertesz's Bluebeard's
Castle (OSA-1158). Probably the Puccini "Trilogy" operas as well. For that
matter, I would guess that the entire OSA-1100 series was in boxes.

Yes, but the RCA Victor first recording of Amahl (LM-1701) came with a
text booklet. Thus the box for the single record.
Similar RCA Victor single LPs in boxes with enclosed printed texts
included LCT-1033 (Die Walkure Act I -- Lehmann, Melchior, Bruno Walter etc.);
LM-1217 (Treasury of Harpsichord Music -- Landowska, later repackaged in a
single standard cardboard sleeve with booklet); LM-1802 ("An Adventure in High
Fidelity"); LM-1849 (Verdi: Te Deum, Boito: Mefistofele Prologue --
Toscanini); LM-1862 (Romberg: "Deep in My Heart, Dear" -- Romberg, cond.); and
LM-1944 (Busoni: Arlecchino -- Glyndebourne Festival). So was LHMV-1007
(Purcell: Dido and Aeneas -- Flagstad et. al.). There were also the entire
issued titles in LHMV-1 through -32, single LPs in boxes with text inserts and,
in many cases, art reproductions.
Also, the single Capitol LPs issued in boxes contained text booklets. That
included "The Orchestra" and other Stokowski titles.
The point of the original inquiry about this, if I recall correctly,
concerned the Telefunken, Ducretet-Thomson, London International etc. LPs issued
in the USA in single boxes that contained nothing but the record in its
regular heavy paper sleeve. No printed texts.
