W. Scott-Elliott on Atlantis and Lemuria

A book published a long time back, but maybe reprinted by theosophical
sources, is "The Story of Atlantis & Lemuria" (or very similar). It is
probably in Oclott Library, and is by a man called Scott-Elliot, a one-
time member of the T.S. It is based on "psychic" perceptions rather
than "scientific" ones, but it does answer the question from one angle -
complete with maps!
This text was originally published as a transaction by the "London Lodge" of
the T.S. The "Psychic" studies were performed by none other than Besant and
Leadbeater, according to a later writer (was this their first research
work?). I believe the first publication was in 1886 (?), but I canont
confirm this at present as my copy (an original edition pulled from the
'Bristol Lodge' library) is currently packed away in storage.
If my date is correct, then H.P.B. would have had access to this material!
how much coorilation is there between the W. Scott-Elliott work and S.D. ???
Note: a small slip within the inside cover states that this was a private
printing for members of the 'London Lodge' and that a future public pressing
would be entitled "The Story of Atlantis"
