This might work
First cut the the glue lines with a exacto blade, take your time and make sure you have them cut very well.Then use a bottle jack or spreader clamp to force it apart. If damage occurs to the shelves you can just cut the damage off and reduce the size of the box a little.
Another alternative is to make thin boards with properly size drilled holes and glue on top of your existing shelves,if you use a contrasting wood like walnut it will look a design choice rather than a repair.
