Hm, at 1” thick I don’t think your shelves will sag ( you can go to sagulator on the internet to find out), but they might deflect (angle down while staying in plane) towards that outside corner.

I suppose you could try it, and if It got too bad you could put a small upright between each shelf right at the outside edge. It would also then act as a book end to prevent you from pushing stuff off the open end.
