Lammer (1863-1945) was an Austrian mountaineer, alpine write, and educator. He was one of the first proponents of guideless climbing and made a number of first ascents in the Alps, sometimes climbing with Oscar Eckenstein. This is the Italian edition of Lammer’s autobiography, ‘Jungborn’, published in German which is regarded as ‘indispensable to understanding mountaineering between the two wars: the temptation of risk and challenge with death’. The photos are by Vittorio Sella. In Italian, no English translation.
