Bound proofs

Page proofs that are bound and used to promote a book, e.g. to key booksellers and journalists, also (if not in galley form) to certain influential publications producing advance book reviews for libraries. In other words, their purpose is quite different from that for unbound proofs.

This practice is common in trade publishing but rare in academic publishing.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup.
