Vorlaufbrot

Is anyone acquainted with this apparently rather superior kind of German bread, originating in Franconia or thereabouts? As far as I can judge from looking around on the internet, the term is old-fashioned but may still be in use. Perhaps someone could even suggest a suitable translation or paraphrase!

+ in a early 19th Century medical report I find the term 'Zusammengefallenheit', as one of the terms characterizing someone who is in a generally weak state. Can someone suggest a good English alternative? - I am not quite sure of the exact implication.
