HENRIETTE MERTZ PDF

Henriette Mertz — was an American patent attorney and ancient history researcher from Chicago. She published several controversial works during the s and s relating to the early discovery and settlement of America. In , Mertz suggested that a photograph of the Bat Creek inscription had been published upside down. Gordon suggested that the inscriptions were derived from a Hebrew alphabet from the 1st century AD but today mainstream archaeologists consider it to be a fraud. In her work entitled Pale Ink self-published c.

According to David Hatcher Childress , Mertz also interpreted Fusang as meaning "fir trees" in Chinese, and ruminated that they might refer to the fir trees of British Columbia. About Mertz's hypotheses, Joseph Needham writes in a footnote that "the proposed identities in general require a heroic suspension of disbelief".

Mertz used as proof a map belonging to Andrea Bianco that showed the Atlantic island of Antillia. However, her theory was ultimately rejected on account of Plato 's dates, the fact that Atlantis sank, and the fact that "Antilla" was most likely a cartographic depiction of either Hispaniola or Cuba. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Homer has Odysseus attacked by Charybdis; being "sucked down into the salty sea - we could see within the swirling cataclysm of the great vortex and at the bottom the earth appeared black with sand while round about the rock roared terribly Jason and the Argonauts then go up this river to the altiplano of Bolivia and to Tihuanaco, the location of the Golden Fleece.

Science and civilisation in China: Vol. Cambridge University Press. Here can be found all kinds of "writing" though no one may ever decipher these strange glyphs.

The book "Fu-Sang," traditionally said to have been written in A. It is a fascinating and well-thought out book, but Mertz relies too heavily on the A. Andrea Bianco map which includes the Atlantic island of Antilla as proof. She demonstrates a similarity between the map of Antilla, "Atlantis" as far as she is concerned, and the eastern portion of North America, using the Mississippi as the western shore of this "island.

This is another attempt to investigate early Chinese trans-Pacific contacts, written midth century by a globe-trotting patent attorney, Henriette Mertz. Like Charles Leland's Fusang , written three-quarters of a century before, Mertz depends heavily on ancient Chinese geographical treatises to support her thesis that the Chinese explored the western United States hundreds, maybe thousands of years before Europeans. The strongest part of the book is her attempt to explain the available Chinese historical descriptions, even the most fanciful parts, in terms of specific locations, animals, and cultures, for the most part plausibly. On the downside, she misidentifies parts of the Hindu sacred texts as Buddhist, and indulges in the amateur etymology game, with predictable results. But these factual lapses seem to be peripheral to the book. Mertz self-published this in , and followed it up with a second edition in , which corrected many of the endemic typos in the first edition.
