Maude Adams Edition
The Little Minister
By J. M. Barrie

New York

The illustrations in this book have been made especially for this edition of The Little Minister by arrangement with Mr. Charles Frohman, through whose curtesy they are here reproduced. Many of them were drawn by C. Allen Gilbert, while others are from photographs with appear here for the first time.

The Little Minister is set in Thrums, a Scottish weaving village based on Barrie's birthplace, and concerns Gavin Dishart, a young impoverished minister with his first congregation. The weavers he serves soon riot in protest against reductions in their wages and harsh working conditions. Warned by Babbie, a beautiful and mysterious Gypsy, that Lord Rintoul, the local laird, has summoned the militia, the weavers prepare for a fight. During the ensuing melee, Dishart rescues Babbie from the soldiers. Dishart and Babbie fall in love, he never suspecting that she is really a well-born lady who is unwillingly betrothed to the old Lord Rintoul. After many trials, the two live happily ever after.
