9780517016572: Atlantis: The Antediluvian World

Long known as the classic work on the study of Atlantis, the author puts forth the idea that this was the true place where civilization began. The great philosopher, Plato, mentioned Atlantis, which is said to have been a great civilization that had sunk into the sea and disappeared. Subjects include Plato's Atlantis, destruction of Atlantis, deluge stories throughout history, inherited civilization, old and new world interaction, Atlantis in Genesis, origin of the alphabet, the kings of Atlantis become Greek gods, the pyramid, the cross, the Garden of Eden, Atlantean colonies, and much more. This one book has done more than any other in promoting the idea for the lost continent of Atlantis.

About the Author:

The author and politician Ignatius Donnelly was born in Philadelphia on 3 November 1831. He was educated in the public schools of his native city, studied law, was admitted to the bar, and practiced. He went to Minnesota in 1857, was elected lieutenant governor in 1859, and again in 1861, and was then elected to Congress as a Republican, serving from 7 December 1863 until 3 March 1869. Besides doing journalistic work he has written an Essay on the Sonnets of Shakespeare, and his most enduring work, Atlantis, the Antediluvian World (New York, 1882), in which he attempts to demonstrate that there once existed in the Atlantic Ocean, opposite the straits of Gibraltar, a large island, known to the ancients as "Atlantis"; and Ragnarok (1883), in which he tries to prove that the deposits of clay, gravel, and decomposed rocks, characteristic of the drift age, were the result of contact between the earth and a comet.
