Yes, they are the same as an ARC and not postable, but you can offer it in the Book Bazaar.
A Bound Galley is the pre-publication version of an upcoming published book that is a printed, perfect bound book. The cover of the Bound Galley is generally not the cover of the book to be published, but the Bound Galley cover contains information useful to marketing the book to reviewers, bookstore distributors and buyers. Comments from these reviewers are frequently printed on the back of the production (i.e. "bookstore") version of the book printed after the review stage. A Bound Galley may contain handwritten editorial marks. It may be missing photographs, illustrations, charts, and even text that will, however, eventually appear in the final finished edition.
