DONNELLY Ignatius revised by Egerton SYKES 
Atlantis - The Antediluvian World
A Modern Revised Edition

Donnelly believed in the historicity of Atlantis and attempted to establish that all known ancient civilizations were descended from this lost land described by Plato.
Many of the theories in the book are the source of modern-day concepts about Atlantis. It found the support of the the Theosophical Society and Rudolf Steiner, and inspired the books by James Churchward on the lost continent of Mu or Lemuria. Sykes has revised Donnelly's work in accord with modern knowledge and new facts.

LANDSBURG A & S   In Search of Ancient Mysteries VG sunned spine $4 C/A Corgi 1974 paperback 197pp + plates. In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean is an area known as the Bermuda triangle which covers approximately three-hundred thousand square miles of open sea. Within this small patch of ocean more than a hundred ships and aircraft have been permanently listed as missing during the last twocenturies -they left no sign of wreckage, sent no distress signals... What really happened to these fated vehicles? Could they have somehow wandered into an ancient force-field, left by an alien technology who once tried to colonize Earth? Alan and Sally Landsburg found themselves on the trail of this and other enigmas of history - colossal temples and monoliths built by the Incas, parts from a digital computer dating from 50 b.c. and the brilliant architecture of the ancient Egyptians.
