Inscribed to Louise Vanderbilt, the first edition of The Call of Brotherhood by Corinne Roosevelt Robinson, the youngest sister of President Theodore Roosevelt.

Twelvemo, ix, 93pp. Green cloth, title stamped in gilt on cover and spine. No additional printings noted. Lacking the publisher’s scarce dust jacket. Light soiling to covers, a very good example. Inscribed on the front free endpaper to American heiress and socialite, Louis Vanderbilt: “For my dear friend Louise Vanderbilt, whose precious heart always responds to ‘The Call of Brotherhood,’ with love from Corinne Roosevelt Robinson. April 28, 1913.”

Corinne Roosevelt Robinson (1861-1933) was the youngest sister of President Theodore Roosevelt and an accomplished poet and author. In the 1890’s, she traveled with Theodore and Edith Roosevelt to the Dakota Badlands, which gave her better insight into his love of the outdoors. She was a frequent visitor to the White House, often staying up all night in conversation with her brother. Her literary works include: Call of Brotherhood (1912), One Woman to Another and Other Poem (1914), Service and Sacrifice (1919), My Brother Theodore Roosevelt (1921), The Poems of Corinne Roosevelt Robinson (1924), and Out of Nymph (1930).
