Self-taught polyglot. It is said that in 1737 Büttner shared a room with Linnaeus in Leiden, where they were taking classes from a.o. Boerhaave, see http://books.google.com/books?id=E4OrAgAAQBAJ&lpg=PT60&pg=PT60#v=onepage&q&f=true The orientalist Michaelis was instrumental in getting Büttner appointed to a teaching position in natural history and philology despite B's lack of a formal education, see http://books.google.com/books?id=XtV2nJcVolQC&lpg=PA278&pg=PA279#v=onepage&q&f=true
