This paper seeks to shed new light on a pioneering work of the notarial argentine historical manualistica, the Historia del Notariado Argentino (History of the Argentine Notarial Institution), written by the Buenos Aires notary, jurist and notarial leader Jose Adrian Negri and published in Buenos Aires in 1947. Book brief, interesting, clear and original, which exhibits in addition to the main history of the notarial institution in our country, the notarial legal and political thought of the author at the end of the first half of the 20th century, and prospects that foresaw for Argentine notarial profession at a time of change and institutional assertion. This concise study, after capturing a biographical profile of Jose Adrian Negri, analyzes the approach and structure of the work, studies its legal historical and historical perspective, its scholarly apparatus and its sources, legislative and bibliographical, national and foreign; sets some considerations on the notarial legal and political thought of its author and; finally, it succinctly examines his influence and gravitation in the historical study of the National Notarial Institution and its law.
