Lost continents: the Atlantis theme in history, science, and literature
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.

Review: Lost ContinentsUser Review - Erik Graff - Goodreads
Although this book is nothing but a compendium of mostly old legends of lost and mysterious lands like Atlantis, Mu and Lemuria, it is well-written and quite entertaining. I recommend it to anyone who knows little of these matters and wants an introduction to them. Read full review

A classic piece about the Atlantis legend and its subsidiaries (Mu, Lemuria, Hollow Earth theories)... Skeptical history at its best, along with good accounts of the personalities behind the mythmaking. Read full review
