I think Plato had something to say about Atlantis considerably before the
20th Century.

This is also mentioned in many of the books of A.A.B. - see for instance 'A
Treatise on Cosmic Fire'.

I agree, there are other sources, but Peter A. Jordan., the writer of this
article, decided to focus on theosophical writings. One could say he didn't do
his homework, but maybe this also represents how some of the general public sees
the Thesophical movement. I've heard that HPB has been blamed for the "New Age"
and all that comes under that name.
