Slip case

An open box inside which sits one or more volumes (usually hardbacks). The hard outer case is cloth covered or is a printed paper case. This protects the book(s) within and makes the whole product look classy and expensive.

This definition is extracted from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on bookbinding.
