Lock, John (L)
John Lock is presented as the ‘author’ of The Mystery of Atlantis. The book is very badly presented with strange formatting, many page numbers missing, no title page etc, etc. It was published by CreateSpace, an Amazon company.
As I read through the book, there small hints that it was written decades before the publication date of 2015. The content of the book supported the North Sea as the location of Atlantis, a concept given great exposure in the 1950’s by Jürgen Spanuth (1907-1998). Further investigation revealed that the text was word for word taken from Spanuth’s Atlantis:The Mystery Unravelled which in turn was the English translation of Das Entraselte Atlantis (Atlantis Revealed). It is obvious that the text was just badly scanned, resulting in the poor formatting, numerous typos and missing images.
This is the most blatant case of printed plagiarism that I have encountered, which may also be a breach of copyright.
