ATLANTIS: The Antediluvian World Book
By Ignatius Donnelly
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. 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.
