Bound Galleys   The bound galley are used for promotional purposes and are frequently sent to book reviewers prior to printing the book. Comments from these reviewers are frequently printed on the back of the production ("book store") version of the book printed after the review stage. Bound galleys are also known as CRANE'S, Uncorrected Page Proofs, and/or Advance Reader Copies. Bound Galleys are the pre-publication version of a soon to be published book. A bound galley may contain hand written editorial marks. It may be missing photographs, illustrations, charts, and even text that will appear in the final finished edition. The size of a bound galley is based on printing economics. Usually they are 5 3/8" x 8 3/8" and frequently are 6 x 9. If the book is on oblong bind or an odd shape and is part of the books story than they are made to fit that size. Crane's/Bound Galleys are not lithographed and reviewers know a bound galley from finished books. Reviewers want a bound galley and the information found on a bound galley cover. Printed usually using paper plates on duplicator printing equipment. Text papers are 50# white text stock print with black ink. Covers are 65# Color Cover stock printed with black ink. Typical sizes are 5 3/8"x 8 3/8 or 6" x 9". Run lengths are from 5 to 1000 copies.
