Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Reverend James Bulwer (21 March 1794 - 11 June 1879) was an English collector, naturalist and conchologist. Bulwer was born at Aylsham in Norfolk and studied at Jesus College, Cambridge. During his time at Cambridge he took drawing lessons from the famous landscape artist John Sell Cotman, and became a fellow of the Linnean Society due to his interest in mollusks, one of his three proposers being William Elford Leach. In 1818 he was made a deacon and in 1822 a priest. In 1823 he became curate of Booterstown in Dublin, moving to Bristol in 1831 and St James's Chapel, Piccadilly in 1833. He spent several winters travelling in Spain, Portugal and the Madeira Islands, sometimes in the company of the philosopher and traveller Alfred Lyall. In the spring of 1825 Bulwer collected a specimen of an unknown petrel in the Madeira Islands.show more
