accomplish, and Frank William Tibbets, who with tender, and never failing sympathy endeavored tosmooth for me life's rugged path.Text on back of dust jacket.Pictured in Majestic and Poetical LanguageThe author, in private life the Baroness von Ravn, has written poetry and plays from girlhood; but her most serious work preceding this appeared a number of years ago, and was entitled "The Scribe of aSoul," for which Professor van der Naillen, noted scientist, and associate of , after reading her manuscript, wrote the introduction. This will give an idea of the scientific value of the present volume,although not of its thrilling interest, which can only be found in reading its amazing pages."Selestor's Men of Atlantis," as the title indicates, is about Atlantis, that great and ancient continent saidto have been in the Atlantic, the physical existence of which, beneath the sea, has been, we believe,quite completely established by scientists. Many books have been written about this land of semi-myth, but none from the standpoint of this writer. In her foreword the author says:"The wonderful amount of material, especially fossils of different kinds, relating to the island of Atlantis, that were gathered by the Schliemanns, father and son, noted archeologists who devoted their lives to proving that such an island really did exist, to which other scientists working independently or cooperating with the Schliemanns, have added their achievements to the proof."In his majestic and poetical language Selestor, to whom we are indebted for the contents of this book,has pictured the highly civilized state of Atlantis' inhabitants, that in several sciences were farther advanced than our nation is today."Selestor's description of the destruction of Atlantis, of the activities of the people on the morning of theday it sank into the deep, is the story of a tragedy beyond telling. After a weird description of the frightof men and women who knew the doom that was coming, the chapter closes with these words of Selestor's:"The quivering mountain sank--an inch--the measure of a man's broad palm--a fathom! Then a quiver and a roar marked moment when the land that mocked the sun went down! Atlantis, thou hast sunk, butshall arise, a slimy thing of ocean, still to bear much beauty, offering riches to the world which hath notknown thy fate."This is a book that will be of equal interest to the scientist, the historian, the student in all fields, andthe reader for unusual entertainment.Cloth, Price $2.00THE CHRISTOPHER PUBLISHING HOUSE, Boston Selestor's Men of Atlantis, by Clara Iza von Ravn, [1937], at sacred-texts.com[p. 7]
 
 FOREWORDAtlantis, "the submerged island," some speak of it as a continent, which for unnumbered generationshas been considered a myth, must now be accepted by fair-minded archeologists and other scientists asa proven fact that such an island at one time did exist.The wonderful amount of material, especially fossils of different kinds, relating to the island of Atlantisthat were gathered by the Schliemanns, father and son, noted archeologists who devoted their lives to proving that such an island really did once exist. Other scientists of note working independently, or cooperating with the Schliemanns, have added their acquirements to the proof.In his majestic and poetical language Selestor, to whom we are indebted for the contents of this book,has pictured for us the highly civilized state of Atlantis' inhabitants, that in several sciences were evenfarther advanced than our nation is today, especially in mentonomy--a study of the mind. Selestor's Men of Atlantis, by Clara Iza von Ravn, [1937], at sacred-texts.com[p. 8] [p. 9] CONTENTSCHAPTER  PAGE IGrowth of an island.
