The Problem with Atlantis.

London: William Rider & Son, Limited, 1924. First Edition. Hardcover. "These works of utopian studies, including The Problem of Atlantis (1924) and History of Atlantis (1927), adopted theories inaugurated by fringe theorist Ignatius Donnelly and looked at the lost island as a Bronze Age civilization that formed a cultural link with the New World, which he invoked through examples he found of parallels between the early civilizations of the Old and New Worlds. Despite Spence's erudition and the width of his reading, the conclusions he reached, avoiding peer-reviewed journals, have been almost universally rejected by mainstream scholarship." Born in Scotland, Lewis Spence was a well-published mythologist and occult scholar. Very Good+. Slight bumped tail and head, slight toning to interior, otherwise, clean, tight, and unmarred. Bound in red cloth with gilt titling and framing. With sixteen full-page plates. xi, 232pp. Illus. (b/w plates). Item #10346
