    Joining The Dots

    I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery. I have addressed the critical questions of when, where and who, using Plato’s own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense.Read More »

Bibliographies of Atlantean Studies

Bibliographies of Atlantean Studies are to be found in most books on the subject and on a number of internet sites. Understandably, these compilations are usually a reflection of the various authors’ theories and prejudices.

Arguably the best known Atlantis related bibliography was published in 1923 by Jean Gattefossé & Cladius Roux. It is reputed to contain 1,700 titles.

Nikolai Zhirov’s Atlantis[458] has an extensive bibliography referring to works in English, Russian and other European languages.

Henry M. Eichner in his Atlantean Chronicles[287] offers a selection of titles in a dozen languages.

Gattefossé, Jean

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.

>In 1939, Gattefossé published a novel, Les Portes de Bronze [1804] (The Bronze Doors), which purported to be based on the research notes of a then recently deceased ‘Jean de Sauveclare’, who had purportedly searched for Atlantis in 1921. Although de Sauveclare is noted on the cover as a co-author, I can find no record of any such real person – perhaps it was just a marketing ploy?<

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.
