A spellbook was a type of book that wizards and other arcane spellcasters used to record their known spells.[1]


The complex notation of a spell took up several full pages of a spellbook: the more powerful the spell, the more pages it took up. A spellbook could have any number of pages.[1]

A typical spellbook in the 1370s DR had one hundred pages.[1] A typical spellbook circa 1479 DR had one hundred and twenty eight pages.[2]
