The Alpine Race in Western
and Central Europe

Fig. 1 (3 views). A Basque from Vizcaya, Spain. This blond Basque was rufous and freckled in childhood; his curly hair and facial features give him an Irish appearance. Nevertheless his general racial classification is with the Alpine group. This is an uncommon type for a Basque, since most of them are Atlanto-Mediterraneans and Dinarics.

Fig. 2 (3 views). A perfect example of a French Alpine. This individual is a Parisian, but his mother came from the Pyrenees.

Fig. 3 (3 views). A Ladin-speaking Swiss from the Canton of Ticino (Tessin). A fully brunet Alpine, typical of southeastern Switzerland and northern Italy.

Fig. 4 (3 views). A Czech from Bohemia, Alpine morphologically but not as brachycephalic as the Alpine mean.
