About Third Mind Books 

Photo of Arthur Nusbaum, curator of Third Mind Books, with William S. BurroughsThird Mind Books is a brick-and-mortar bookstore located in Downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan. We carry new and used editions, and we specialize in rare books about the Beat Generation and other notable movements. Stop by and browse our vast selection of rare and unique items. Say hi to curator, Arthur S. Nusbaum, and meet the rest of our team.

In 2010, Arthur made the leap that became Third Mind Books in order to provide an antiquarian bookselling source of paramount legitimacy to enthusiasts, collectors, and scholars alike. As founder & head curator, Arthur spearheads a team of associates committed to this objective that are constantly working to uphold this standard. 

Titled after the William S. Burroughs & Brion Gysin collaboration, Third Mind Books specializes in works by and about members of the Beat Generation & the San Francisco Renaissance. However, we are "Beat & Beyond" and offer items from the Modernist, "New York School" & "Black Mountain" canons, along with essential rarities from other notable movements and more recent publications of notable authors and philosophers.
