Amanuensis is a 1st-level ritual.[FRPG:142]

You capture the writing from one source (a book, scroll,  or tablet) and cause it to appear onto a special prepared  paper, parchment, book, or some other similar item. This  ritual copies up to 250 words of text, enough to fill one  page with text. A copied illustration counts as a number  of words proportional to the amount of the page the illustration requires. This ritual can be used to copy a ritual scroll, even if  you have not mastered the ritual on the original scroll.  Creating a ritual scroll in this manner takes twice as long  as creating a ritual book but has the same cost (in addition  to the component cost of this ritual).
