Vindicators and pillagers that spawn from raids have a small chance to drop an enchanted book with a level 30 enchantment, which may be a treasure enchantment.
Players can create an enchanted book by enchanting a book on an enchantment table. Books have a decreased chance of getting multiple enchantments specifically, if multiple enchantments would be added then one will be removed at random , and have a lower "enchantability level" than most other items.
Treasure enchantments such as Mending cannot be obtained from an enchantment table. In Survival, enchanted books are the only method to obtain certain enchantments on certain tools, such as Unbreaking on shields.
Enchanted books have a shine effect on their sprite. To use an enchanted book, the player must place an item in the first slot in an anvil , and a book in the next. In order to complete the enchantment, the player must have the required amount of experience. Note that using an enchanted book gets significant discounts at the anvil. Enchanted books themselves can be combined to create a single book with increased or multiple enchantments, similar to combining tools or weapons.
When combining items, the compatible enchantments from the book in the second slot are transferred to the item from the first slot, keeping the highest level of any type. If two enchantments have the same level and a higher level is available, they will combine into the next level. If a book is applied to an item which can't take all of its spells, the appropriate spells are transferred, while the unusable ones are lost.
Enchanted books are single-use. Enchanted books do not exhibit their enchantment. For example, a book with Sharpness IV as an enchantment will do no more damage than an un-enchanted book, or any non-weapon item, would when used as a weapon. An exception to this is the Silk Touch enchantment which will apply if used in a block that doesn't require a tool to be mined.

Enchanted books can enchant the usual items that can be enchanted at an enchantment table , but unlike an enchantment table , they are able to boost enchantments such as Sharpness or Thorns to their maximum power, and may apply the following enchantments to items:.
The player can enchant any item with any enchantment in creative mode, allowing any applied effects to exhibit themselves. The enchanted item can still be used in Survival mode without any loss of enchantments.
Enchantments which are normally incompatible are still incompatible; for example, Piercing and Multishot cannot be both applied to the same item, even in Creative mode. They use their item data to determine what enchantments are stored for enchanting in an anvil. The allowed sub-tags are id and lvl , equivalent to the format of the ench tag which is used for enchantments applied to items.
The following NBT structure is provided to show how the StoredEnchantments tag is organized, and is not comprehensive above the tag tag. The full NBT for an item can be found here.
