In 2010, Arthur S. Nusbaum 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.

Our brick-and-mortar location is NOW OPEN in Downtown Ann Arbor. Stop by and browse our vast selection of rare and unique items. Say hi to Arthur, and meet the rest of our team.
