Un compositeur reprenait alors la galée (l’ensemble des lignes correspondant à une page de texte), la desserrait et faisait ligne par ligne, caractère par caractère, les modifications demandées (André 1998, 46).

Galley proofs. The first printed sheets available for proofreading or collation after a manuscript has been set in type. Even though recent book production methods do not require that a typographer rekeyboard an author‘s text, unpaginated proof sheets of that text are still referred to as galleys. Because electronic copy does not need to be rekeyboarded, the galley proof stage is now often omitted (Kline 1998, 271).
