Synopsis
An explorer finds a great library in the East which contains books that detail the story of Atlantis. Atlantis vanished beneath the waves because a commoner partook of a black magic potion so he could gain the love of the vizier's daughter. The potion made him so large that Atlantis sunk under his weight and he became too large for the Earth itself to hold him and he fell off the planet and died.
