Roosevelt's Recommended Reading

In [Theodore Rex], the author shares the contents of a letter Roosevelt wrote in reply to a query from Nicholas Murray Butler, the president of Columbia University, inquiring as to what books the President would recommend. A copy of this letter is here: http://www.theodore-roosevelt.com/ima....

Many of the books are out of print or I couldn't find them.

Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) I added a few others that I'm able to identify; I hope that's OK.

Interesting list!
