George Perry (1771-?)
Perry was a 19th-century English architect and amateur naturalist and malacologist. Perry is known for two natural history works: Arcana; or the museum of natural history, published monthly from January 1810 to September 1811 and Conchology, or the natural history of shells, published in 1811. Although often ridiculed during his life by the established science community, primarily for being a supporter of Lamarck rather than of Linnaeus
