They usually have a final edit for corrections before they are approved for pre-publication, sometimes as Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs), which are sent to editors and reviewers and can, but not always, have the final jacket art included. Proofs are fun to collect because you often see the final changes made by or for the author by their editor.
