The History of Atlantis
A renowned scholar of the Atlantis myth, Lewis Spence wrote five books on the fabled land, and this is considered by many to be his best work. Replete with the magic and romance of that fantastical lost land, this replica of the first 1926 edition includes all of the original maps, photos, charts, and illustrations, and discusses: . the differences between Atlantean and other histories . why Plato's narrative of the realm was not allegorical . the numerous historical references to and proofs of the reality of Atlantis . the geography of Atlantis . the inhabitants of and early human society in Atlantis . the kings of Atlantis . corroboration of the existence of the realm in British literature . Atlantean culture, religion, and traditions . and much, much more. Scottish occultist LEWIS SPENCE (1874-1955) was a fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland, and vice president of the Scottish Anthropological and Folklore Society. He authored numerous books of mythology, folklore, and the occult, including The Occult Causes of the Present War (1940), and The Magic Arts in Celtic Britain (1945).
