I think you are making much out of very little (as regards the condition of
the book). A notification to the publisher about the defective copy would
almost certainly result it a replacement. While it might be nice if some
caring soul personally inspected each and every book that was shipped out of
their warehouse, I doubt that you would appreciate the resulting increase in
book price and/or shipping charges. I don't really see that this indicates
any shoddiness on the part of the publisher; printing and binding are not
flawless processes, and the errors or shortcomings are often not readily
apparent without a careful examination.
