Map of Atlantis by Bory de St Vincent, dated 1800-1805.
Bory de St Vincent, an educated French politician and naturalist, believed Atlantis to be the original home of all civilisation.
In his book “Essais sur les isles fortunées”, he theorises that the island of Atlantis had suffered two blows. The first, after a volcanic eruption in the Mediterranean that reduced the Island by half. The second, after the Atlanteans were defeated by the Athenians and what was left of Atlantis sank, leaving only the islands of the Canaries, Madeiras, and the Azores as remnants.
Bory de St Vincent might have gotten his idea from J.P de Tournefort who, a century earlier, suggested that an earthquake in the Mediterranean had sent a rush of water to wash over Atlantis.
Bory de St Vincent illustrated a map: “Carte conjecturale de l’Atlantide”, to support his argument.
