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.
