In 2010, Founder & Curator Arthur S. Nusbaum made the leap that became Third Mind Books (titled after the William S. Burroughs/Brion Gysin collaboration) in order to provide an antiquarian bookselling source of paramount legitimacy to enthusiasts, collectors, and scholars alike. He spearheads a team of associates committed to this objective that are constantly working to uphold this standard. While Third Mind Books specializes in works by and about members of the Beat Generation/San Francisco Renaissance, we are "Beat & Beyond" and offer items from the Modernist, "New York School" & "Black Mountain" canons, along with essential rarities from other notable movements.
Currently, Third Mind Books is an online-only bookselling source. However, we are planning to eventually secure a limited hours brick-and-mortar store/gallery/venue in Downtown Ann Arbor.
Inquiries are welcome, as are scheduled appointments to serious buyers.
