If you have a ebook reader such as a nook, you can actually get that Si Stebbins book for free through borders (if not free, and extremely low price). Also, I beleive a member here (Steven Youle (i know the last name HAS to be spelled wrong, just doesn't look right)) has done some notes on it, he actually gave me some advice on it, and I have long lost interest in useing it because I'm always in a casual enviroment, and generally only have 1 deck of cards on me at any given time, and if it's set up for anything, it's usually not that, lol.

Demonbrn, you were close with the spelling of his name: It is Steven Youell and he is quite a fantastic card man. He lectured at Ring 96 in Long Beach (Ca) a year or so ago. Yes, he did a good trick with Si Stebbins and it is in his booklet Weapons of Mass Destruciton. At least that is what I remember the title was. Could be wrong.
But, the point is not to find a trick here and there, or in the case of Steve Beam, lots of them. I am just thinking out loud a book devoted only to the best 25 Si Stebbins tricks would see big and make a contribution to magic.

I'm interested in the book called Si Stebbins Card Tricks And The Way He Performs Them, first published in 1898. Since the copyright of the book is long time expired, I wonder if there is a PDF of the booklet available some where?

Not sure what a PDF is, but the booklet was available some years ago as it was included in a magic set sold in toy shops.

Magicdano, there are only 4 routines using Si Stebbins in volume VIII Smile
I suppose that Magicmann was talking about "Recycling Si".

Can anyone tell me where I can, reasonably, find the way to get to Si Stebbins from new deck order? I understand it can be found in Darwin Ortiz's book, but I see that it costs nearly $200 if you can find it. Can anyone refer me to a more reasonably priced source, or PM me with the instructions?
Thanks,
KJ.
