In 1.14 Update, Mojang has completely changed the villager trade system. I decided to experiment that version if there's any new trade as well as my reference for 1.14's gameplay.

Profession


Villagers spawn naturally as Nitwit and they can changed their profession based on blocks near to them. You can change their profession by breaking their workstation and placing the new one. Once you made a trade with that villager, their profession become locked and can't be undone.

Experience and Ranks


Each Villager begin in Novice rank and level up through multiple tradings. I categorized the Experience Gain(for the villager NOT the player)in the Trading System into 3 which are:

  • High: Takes 2-3 trades to level up. Very quick
  • Medium: Takes 4-7 trades to level up. Might need some resources.
  • Low: Takes more than 8 trades to level up. Usually more than the supply so you can't level up the villager in one session.
These information that can be found under trading system are for the adjacent rank only. For example, An Apprentice Librarian offered these trade:

Min. Rank

Sell
Exp. Gain
Novice
24 Papers
1 Emerald
Medium
Novice
6 Emeralds
3 Bookshelves
Low
Apprentice

1 Lantern
Low

4 Books
1 Emerald
Medium

If you want to level up the librarian, the fastest way is take the 4th trade. Why? Because Apprentice trades is adjacent to the next rank,Journeyman. The Exp. Gain info on Novice are for the Apprentice. So, you would take 1st trade if you want to level up a Librarian from Novice to Apprentice. If you continue to trade papers on an Apprentice Librarian, you notice the experience gain by the villager is either stay the same or drop by half. Hence, it is faster for the newer trades than the old ones. Different trade options give different experience gain by the villager. From my experiment, I found out that selling items for emeralds give more experience than buying items from the villager

There are five levels for all professions:

  1. Novice,
  2. Apprentice,
  3. Journeyman,
  4. Expert and
  5. Master.


Trading System


All Villager has 2 trades to offer. Every level gain unlocks 1-2 new trade based on their profession. Some trade are always present while others can change on different villager of same profession. Do note that the following spoilers shows all possible trade for each profession with the probability to appear. Master Villagers can have up to maximum 10 different trades only.

- Librarian Novice trade - Impaling V for 64 emeralds. I assume this means that the other trades can also go up to 64 emeralds but am not positive.

Probably 64 emeralds is the maximum price because there's no more extra slot in buy section. Surprised that Impaling V is more expensive than Mending book. But thanks anyway!

Just so you know, Bane of Artherpodes 5 was also for 64 emeralds at novice level.
However with more testing, you can get the same enchantment for different costs at the same level (eg. Novice,apprentice etc.)

EDIT - 5 mins later also found Bane of arthripods 5 for 29 emeralds, so it is a massive range...

Never done that. Is the librarian new or have you traded with him before he enter the nether? Possible reason could be due to new villager can become jobless once it went far from their workstation(lecturn).In this case the villager went to the nether. Once return back, the villager probably close to the lecturn changing him to librarian back but with new trades.

Did some test, it seems you can get enchanted books for 5 emeralds+ 1 book. If combine with hero of village status effect and you had traded with the villagers before, you can get a discounted price of 1 emerald+book.
