Advance copies

Copies of a new publication received from the printer in advance of the main shipment and sent on to the author, to distributors and other key people (major book buyers and reviewers, for instance). Sometimes, in shorthand form, these are referred to as ‘advances’ but they should not be confused with publishers’ advances (advance payments to authors).

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. It was first properly referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on advance copies.
