A Complete Reference on Notarial Laws and Procedures in America
This is an excellent reference work that deserves to be on the shelf of every notary public. It was written by Peter J. Van Alstyne and published by the Notary Law Institute. It is informative, scholarly, interesting, and enlightening.
It is written like a dissertation, complete with footnotes and references, yet reads like prose. Once you start reading it, it's hard to put it down. Subjects that are just touched on in most notary manuals are explained in great detail. It cites many cases and references, and covers many issues such as impartiality, unauthorized practice of law, attorneys as notaries, and much more. Both the notary public and the notary signing agent will find much useful information in the section on notarial certificates.
