KRUNITZ, kru’-nitz, (John George) A physician and natural philosopher, was born in 1728 at Berlin, where he established himself and wrote many scientific works. Of these the most important is an “Economico-Technological Encyclopaedia,” which he began in 1773. He had finished 73 volumes, and had just arrived at the article, “Leiche,”, a corpse, when his further progress was stopped by death, in 1796. The work was continued after his decease.
