Présentation de l'éditeur
This edition has been annotated to contain an article on The New Thought Movement and Theosophy, with an analysis of the principles of both currents of thought (deeply linked in their roots) and the influence in the authors on this book, both acclaimed theosophists.
This book has provided for a century all the information on Atlantis and Lemuria that has been used all along. This is the root and the fountain of the knowledge about the lost continents that have arouse so much passion in the last few decades.
Although the original edition mentions Scott-Elliot as the only author, the information for it was provided by the famous writer Charles Leadbeater, author of dozens of esoteric books and a direct disciple of Helena Blavatsky; Scott-Elliot gave that information the scientific backing which is still cited today.
