Public Book of Order

A list of all buy and sell orders for a certain security that were placed by members of the public. The public book contains orders that have not yet been filled. The orders, however, are not public; only the book keeper has access to the details of most orders. Market makers and specialists have access only to the highest and lowest orders in order to facilitate trade.
