Author copies

Copies of a book that are given to an author by the publisher free of charge as per the terms of their author contract. These are among the advance copies sent out at (or even before) publication. Usually, the author contract will prohibit the sale of these copies by the author (or any others bought at the author discount price).

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.
