Galley proofs

Traditionally, first proofs of the book that are output on galleys (long, continuous sheets of paper). If pagination is indicated, these are called ‘page on galley’ proofs.

With the rise of PC-based desktop publishing and decline in the use of specialist typesetting equipment, galley proofs are increasingly rare, replaced by modern page proofs.

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.
