Printouts of the book which at various stages are checked by the author, proof-reader, production editor, etc. Often in the form of page proofs, these include first proofs, final proofs and printer’s proofs.

In the form of bound proofs, they are sometimes used to promote a book.

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.
