This small and quite spartan-looking booklet contains the rules of the Primitive Methodist Connexion, also referred to as 'Prims'.
The Primitive Methodist Church existed in the United Kingdom within the Methodist tradition, but was formed only in the early 1800s. The Church was established in a spirit of revivalism by its leaders, the Wesleyan Methodists Hugh Bourne (1772–1852) and William Clowes (1780–1851). In the UK, the Church merged with the Wesleyan Methodist Church and the Wesleyan New Connexion in 1932. In the US the denomination, although small, still exists.
