Atlantis the Antediluvian World

Ignatius Donnelly

A Discovery of a New World

John Wilkins

A fascinating 300 year old book that puts forward the idea that there is a habitable world in the Moon. It states, in one of the opening pages, that just because it’s a strange idea, doesn’t mean it should be rejected, because other strange ideas have been proven true. Fair point.
