Pégot-Ogier, Eugene

Eugene Pégot-Ogier (1824-1895) was the author of The Fortunate Isles translated into English in 1871[651]. He unequivocally identified the Canaries as the Fortunate Isles referred to in antiquity. He went further and offered his view that the aboriginal Guanches of the Canaries had been part of the Atlantean empire, together with the Berber peoples across North Africa.

 The Fortunate Isles was republished in 2009, while the 1871 edition can now be read or downloaded via the Internet(a).
