Erskine, Douglas (t)

Douglas Erskine was a pseudonym of the Canadian author John Stuart Buchan(1852-1927), not to be Dolphin's Risgeconfused with the other John Buchan who wrote the ever popular 39 Steps.

Erskine was the author of A Bit of Atlantis which although a novel, the author wrote an extensive 49-page Introduction which includes much of the Atlantis text written by Plato. He also follows Ignatius Donnelly’s views regarding the location of Atlantis, who situated it on part of the Mid Atlantic Ridge, which was then known as ‘Dolphin’s Ridge’ incorporating the Azores. Erskine’s book which can be read online(a) included Donnelly’s map of Dolphin’s Ridge in his book.
