Louis François Élisabeth Ramond, baron de Carbonnières (1755-1827) was a French politician, geologist and botanist, and is regarded as one of the first explorers of the high mountains of the Pyrenees.


During his law studies at the university of his home town Strasbourg he befriended another student, Jakob Michael Reinhold Lenz (1751-1792), a writer of the Sturm und Drang movement. During this period Ramond discovered German Romantic literature, in particular Goethe's Werther, which inspired him to become a writer and to publish the present very rare ittle Werther-influenced book, ”Les Dernières aventures du jeune d’Olban” (The Last Adventures of Young Olban).
