KANNEGIESER, Sigismund (kan-na-g~e-zer), German explorer, born in Freiberg in 1706; died in Ratisbon in 1759. He studied in Vienna, and was appointed a clerk in the state department in 1728, but soon resigned his post to follow his tastes for adventure and science. He travelled in North and South America and the West Indies for fifteen years, and was offered the appointment of professor of history in the College of Santiago, Chili, but refused it, and, returning in 1744, settled in Ratisbon. He published "Briefe aus Sud-Amerika" (Ratisbon, 1746); "Menschen und Litnder" (1747); "Tagebuch der Reisen" (Stuttgart, 1749); "Reisen im sudliehen Amerika" (3 vols., Leipsic, 1750); "Neueste Reisen dutch Louisiana" (2 vols., Ratisbon, 1751); "Das Leben der Incas Prinzen yon Peru" (3 vols., Vienna, 1755); and "Ansichten uber die Peruanischen Alterthihner und Peru uberhaupt" (3 vols., Ratisbon, 1758).
