Three Elements of an English Summoning Spell

“There are customarily three elements of a traditional summoning spell:

  1. The envoy finds the person
  2. The envoy provides a path to the summoned person and a handsel (gift) to bind him
  3. The temporal is used to provide an actual time for the summoned to appear.”

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, Susanna Clarke
