Eugenius Johann Christoph Esper studied botany from an early age and was later encouraged by his professor to change his studies from theology to natural history. After graduation, he worked at Erlanger University in charge of the Natural History department where he also amassed a fine collection of specimens, now in the zoological museum in Munich. He published many works, including the most comprehensive work on butterflies of the time, Die Schmetterlinge in Abbildungen, from 1777-1794.
