Joachim Heinrieh Campe, a German author and publisher, born at Deensen in 1746, died in Brunswick, Oct. 22, 1818. He studied theology at Helmstedt and at Halle, in 1773 was appointed chaplain in the Prussian army, and afterward became a teacher. In 1787 he was chosen by the government of Brunswick to superintend and reform the schools of that duchy. He became the head of a publishing house there, which issued his numerous works, and was afterward conducted by Vieweg, his son-in-law. Campe published Briefe aus Paris (1790) and a German dictionary (1807-'ll), but his reputation rests upon his numerous books of travel, and other books of instruction for the young. The 21st edition of his Entdechung von Amerika was published in 1869. His Robinson der Jiingere, an imitation of De Foe's " Robinson Crusoe," was first published in 1779; in 1870 77 editions in German had been printed, and the work had been translated into most European languages. Both these books have also been translated into Hebrew. His biography by Hallier was published in 1862.
