The great classic of Atlantis, this book more than any other established the existence of this lost continent for the modern world. Attracting hundreds of thousands of readers and stimulating vast debate, it influenced generations of people including countless scientists who went on to do serious work in their fields, and numerous science-fiction writers. It is a measure of the power of the Atlantis myth that, despite all the evidence to the contrary, the idea of a submerged Atlantic Ocean continent remains vigorous today, long after Donnelly's work first appeared.A lawyer and politician before he turned to writing, Ignatius Donnelly (1831‒1901) spent many years amassing evidence for his book on Atlantis. Displaying an immense knowledge of Platonic and Biblical material, comparative archeological discoveries, folk traditions of deluges, and geological data supporting catastrophic volcanic activity, Donnelly staggered his readers with ""facts"" and overwhelmed them with his many brilliant arguments. Despite the many more recent discoveries that have proved many of his ""facts"" to be false, his arguments still dazzle and his central myth continues to fascinate. The highly appealing idea of a lost continent with a high civilization, one that was the mother of all other civilizations, is one of the most enduring of all human myths and shows no signs of disappearing.A seminal work on Atlantis and a classic in the history of culture, this book is the starting point for anyone sincerely interested in the Atlantis myth. Still the most readable and imaginative of the books on Atlantis, it is a work that will long outlive most of the more recent accounts. As a study of the golden past, it is an enormously intriguing and enjoyable book.… (més)

A book I read many years ago when researching Atlantis - the myths, the legends and the theories. This is an important book to read, now save on my 'to read' pile again.

EUROPEAN LITERATURE ON ATLANTIS SINCE 1914, REVIEWED. By EGERTON SYKES.

Subsequent articles will deal with the Latin American comIjlex
and thie English Speaking World, respectively.
In Europe. The revival of interest in matters Atlantean,
after the dull and uninteresting first years of this Century,
may be said to date from the end of World War I, when Germany
was undergoing the agonies of defeat and France those
of victory, and the minds of many writers turned to the study
of that portion of our cultural past where finality had seemingly
been reached.

In Prance, although not the first in order of date, Pierre
Benoit really set the ball rolling with his Atlantide (1919), a
work of fiction which not only turned attention to the past,
but also satisfied France’s colonial aspirations by placing the
Lost Continent in French North Africa. This work, the only
one on Atlantis to have been filmed, has been the subject of
three inferior productions in Europe and the U.S.A.

Meanwhile, a timid beginning had already been made by
Paul Gatfarel, whose Atlantide, published in 1913, was followed
in 1914 by a series of papers presented over the next ten years
to the Paris Academy of Sciences by Emile Belot, who had
been working on a lunar theory similar to that of Hoerbiger.
Louis Germain had also presented a paper to the Academy in
1911, but did not amplify his conclusions until his Atlantide
appeared in 1924.

R. M. Gattefosse with Adam L’Homme
Tertiare (1919), La Verite Sur L’Atlantide (1923), Les Portes
de Bronze (1941) and Les Sages Ecritures (1945), and his
brother, Jean Gattefosse with L’Hypothese de la Derive des
Continents (1925) and L’Hyperboree et les Migrations
Neolithiques (1940) were two of the three producers of the
Bibliographie de L’Atlantide in 1926, the third being C. Roux,
also the author of much Atlantean material.

In 1925, Paul Le Cour was appointed Secretary General
of the newly-formed French Atlantis Society, which shortly
afterwards split into two groups, the break-away being headed
by R. Devigne, himself the author of Atlantide (1923). The
journal of the Society Atlantis of which Paul Le Cour is editor,
is still in existence, although in the interim it has tiirned somewhat
towards Celtic Mysticism. He has written numerous
books and articles of which perhaps the most important is
A La Recherche D’Un Monde Perdu (1926).

In 1928, P'aul Coussin launched a bitter attack on the
Atlantis hypothesis in his book L’Atlantide de Platon, but, as
has so frequently happened, his evidence is more in favour
than against. Shortly before that, the French translation of
Bessmertny from the German had been completed by A. Gidon,
who had also published Les Submersions Atlantiques in 1914,
and was later to translate Imbelloni from the Spanish. In
1924 the Abbe Moreux published a popular ...

The book to read on Atlantis ( )
  Georges_T._Dodds | Mar 30, 2013 |
It's more convincing than I expected. The author's work was first published in 1882. He presents geological, cross-cultural, historical, linguistic, and biographical evidence. Primary points include: geological evidence of major land mass in the Atlantic Ocean which sank before our modern history due to volcanic eruption and underwater turbulence (tops of the Azores are a remnant); land mass includes extentions toward Africa and South American and a point of island near Ireland; plethora examples exist of similarities between American and European history (direction of origin; flood legend; 12 (or 10) tribes/families legends; stories of gods; architecture (pyramids, mounds, arches, etc.); language (Atlantis, Atlazl, Adhem, Adam; Baal, Bel, Baalz, god names, and common terms); last section ties specific details to Atlantean legends from Mississippi Valley, Ohio valley, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Ireland, Iberian Peninsula, Egypt, Greece, Italy, et al. The beginning section quotes Plato's entire discourse on Atlantis, which scholars have debated as being either a moral example or an actual recounting of what other scholars told him. Atlantean society had 12 organized families/tribes; black, white, and red races; well-described laws (with legacies in Egypt, American, Judaism, Islam, etc); scientific discovery (gunpowder, major grains, compass, et al). The founders of Atlantis became "gods" in descendant cultures. ( )

The world has made such comet-like advance. Lately on science, we may almost hope, Before we die of Sheer decay, to learn. Something about our infancy; when lived. That great, original, broad-eyed, sunken race. Whose knowledge, like the sea-sustaining rocks.
Hath formed the base of this world's fluctuous lore.--FESTUS
