Santiago Lawrie has translated into serviceable English the Argentine Commercial Code of 1889, together with major supplementary laws and decree-laws through 1952. The volume also contains a prefatory essay by Carlos Juan Zavala Rodríguez, which presents a historical sketch of commercial legislation in the Argentine, and some notes on areas of the code in which custom and usage may have weight. This is a useful reference work for the student of Argentine business and economic history.
