In its collapsed position, the various flaps of the box are not folded, excepting that the flap 31 has been secured in place to the side I9, and Ythe doubled cover has been folded about the line I8 on to the remainder~ of the collapsed blank, thereby forming a collapsed box whose Width is that of the top -plus 4thewidth of one side, and thereby serves as a brace and support for the ‘ whose length is the length Vof the cover. plus the lengths of >the various flaps. ledge.
