Gattefossé, Jean (L)

Jean Gattefossé (1899-1960) was an advocate of a North African Atlantis and wrote two books[311][312] on the subject. Earlier Gattefossé together with Claudius Roux published an extensive bibliography in a volume[313], which contains a list of 1,700 books and articles relating to Atlantis.

According to Atlantisforschung.de(a) Gattefossé wrote to Egerton Sykes in 1959 declaring his belief that the Pillars of Heracles were situated in Tartessos now known as Seville, “where they are a tourist attraction.” The same link has interesting additional information about Jean and his brother René-Maurice.
