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 that includes much of the Atlantis text written by Plato.

Erskine’s book which can be read online(a) includes Donnelly’s map of Dolphin’s Ridge.
