Lost Continents: The Atlantis Theme in History, Science, and Literature
- by L. Sprague De Camp
"A leading authority examines the facts and fancies
behind the Atlantis theme in history, science, and
literature. Sources include the classical works from
which Plato drew his proposal of the existence of an
island continent, Sir Thomas More's Utopia, the
Lemurian Continent theory, K. T. Frost's equation
of Atlantis with Crete, and many other citations of
Atlantis in both famous and lesser-known literature.
Related legends are also recounted and refuted, and
reports include accounts of actual expeditions searching
for the sunken continent and attempts to prove its
existence through comparative anatomy and zoology."
This books gives a negative view of H.P.Blavatsky and
Theosophy but gives a great deal of other valuable
material on Atlantis and Lemuria.
