Juncker, Gottlob John

, a learned physician, was born on the 3d of June, 1680, at Londorff, near Gie.ssen, in Hesse. He pursued his medical studies at Marpurg and Erfurt, and afterwards took the degree of M. D. at Halle, in 1718. He became subsequently a distinguished professor in this university, and attained a high reputation as physician to the public hospital. He died at Halle, Oct. 25, 1759. His works, which are chiefly compilations, have | been much esteemed, and are still occasionally referred to, especially as they contain the best and most compendious view of the doctrines of Stahl, which he espoused and taught. They are as follows: 1. “Conspectus Medicinas Theoretico-practicoe, Tabulis 137 primaries morbos, methodo Stahliana tractandos, exhibens,Halle, 17 Is, 4to; 2. “Conspectus ChirurgiaR,” &c. ibid. 1721, 4to 3. “Conspectus Formularum Medicarum,” &c. ibid. 1723, 4to 4. “Conspectus Therapeiae generalis, &c. Tabnlis 20 methodo Stahliana conscriptus,” ibid. 1725, 4to 5. “Conspectus Chemiae Theoretico-practicac in forma Tabularum repraesentatus, &c. Tomus prior,” ibid. 1730, 4to. This is an elementary work on chemistry, according to the principles of Becher and Stahl. 6. “Conspectus Physiologic,” ibid. 1735, 4to; and 7. “Conspectus Pathologiac,” ibid. 1736, 4to. Juncker likewise published many academical theses on medical, chirurgical, and philosophical subjects. 1
