Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Henry Ferriss (18 November 1849-17 March 1926) was an amateur conchologist. According to Henry Augustus Pilsbry, Ferriss was "the fore-most of American landshell collectors... as a collector he has probably never been surpassed." Born in Kendall Township, Kendall County, Illinois, Ferriss moved to southeastern Kansas in 1869 to stake a claim as a farmer, freighter, and storekeeper. He returned to Illinois in 1872 to work as a reporter and editor of several newspapers in Joliet, Illinois.show more
