scrivener

1. a professional copyist; a scribe 2. a notary


I was just reading the blog of someone who refers to himself as a scrivener. The most famous American scrivener would have to be the fictional character Bartleby, from the short story “Bartleby the Scrivener” by Herman Melville. Excellent story. Highly recommended.
