Paradise Found: The Cradle of the Human Race at the North Pole: A Study of the Prehistoric World is an 1885 treatise by William F. Warren, in which the author argues that the Biblical Garden of Eden and other spaces of mythical character, including Atlantis, Hyperborea, and others, are later re-interpretations of the historical birthplace of humanity, now situated in the Arctic North. The book was popular enough in Warren's lifetime to go through at least eleven re-editions in the United States, as well as a British edition; but remained out of print for some eighty-years after the final American edition, being returned to print through smaller esoteric publishers after it had entered the public domain.

Of interest

The book was referenced in Willis George Emerson's 1908 novel The Smoky God, a classic of the hollow earth genre, in which Warren is said to have "almost stubbed his toe against the real truth, but missed it seemingly by only a hair's breadth, if the old Norseman's revelation be true" (referring to Olaf Jansen, the lead in Emerson's story).
