an ancient Hindu map.  Part of the sub-title of his book is The zodiac shown to be an old terrestrial map in which the Atlantic isle is delineated. He also thought that most of Greek mythology was based on a misinterpretation of the same astrological zodiac!

His book is freely available in various formats on the Internet(a).
