A spell of the great Dr. Martin Pale, found in the Discourses. The purpose of the spell appeared to be to bring the magician into the presence of Death himself. For many years it was considered a flight of fancy, since most modern people do not imagine Death as a person. In 1815 - 1816 Strange and Norrell however realized that the spell might have a practical application in the cure of disease[49].
