By Ignatius Donnelly. That there once existed in the Atlantic Ocean, opposite the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea, a large island, which was the remnant of an Atlantic continent, and known to the ancient world as Atlantis. That the description of this island given by Plato is not, its has been long supposed, fable, but veritable history. That it became, in the course of ages, a populous and mighty nation, from whose overflowings the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi River, the Amazon, the Pacific coast of South America, the Mediterranean, the west coast of Europe and Africa, the Baltic, the Black Sea, and the Caspian were populated by civilized nations.

ATLANTIS: THE ANTEDILUVIAN WORLD
Atlantis: The Antediluvian World is a pseudoarchaeological book published in by Minnesota populist politician Ignatius L. Donnelly , who was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in Donnelly considered Plato 's account of Atlantis as largely factual and suggested that all known ancient civilizations were descended from this lost land. Many of its theories are the source of many modern-day concepts about Atlantis, including these: the civilization and technology beyond its time, the origins of all present races and civilizations, and a civil war between good and evil. It was avidly supported by publications of Helena Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society as well as by Rudolf Steiner. Donnelly discusses many aspects of his proposed theory in extreme detail. He includes many illustrations as well as charts with lingual similarities.
