Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0548007144, Hardcover)

1938. The tradition of the lost Atlantis, one of the most romantic stories that has come down to us from the ancient world, has stirred the imagination of men ever since Plato wrote his famous dialogue, the Critias. In this volume Bramwell discusses the evidences of truth behind the legend. He examines the writings and conclusions of authorities from Plato to Ignatius Donnelly to Lewis Spence, and sets forth the most recent scientific findings and chief modern theories. But, he also recognizes that for many the real value of Atlantis is as a symbol of a Golden Age, and of escape to a world of magic and romance. Contents: The Story of Atlantis; Through A Glass Darkly; Then Face to Face; Vast Shady Hills; and Lost Dreams and Plaintive Hopes.
