Lacking numbers 4 and 10-12. Authors represented include W.B. Yeats, Ernest Rhys, A.E., John Masefield and W.B. Yeats, including the first appearance in print of Yeats' 'Spinning Song' (see Wade p. 331) and Masefield's 'Cargoes' (see Errington C035.003). Pyle notes 'A Broad Sheet is remarkable not only for the consistency of Yeats's style in a manner derived from Morris and nourished in its individuality through the Arts and Crafts movement, but for revealing Yeats's passion for the spoken word used in traditional or unconventional poetry' (see The Different Worlds of Jack B. Yeats - His Cartoons and Illustrations, p. 233).
