20 Edwin Wiley Fuller
Sea - Gift by Edwin Wiley Fuller 1940 set in Chapel Hill, North Carolina E. J. Hale & Son, NY 1940 Hardcover Very Good 
Edwin Wiley Fuller's Sea-Gift, the first novel set in part in Chapel Hill, North Carolina; black cloth hardcover w/ gilt titles; faded gift inscription to ffep; scarce; Sea-Gift is, in some respects, autobiographical. It describes the youth of one John Smith, his career at The University of North Carolina, and his participation in the Civil War. The novel is interesting for a number of reasons. It was the first novel set, in part, in the town of Chapel Hill. Second, it contains a tall-tale telling contest including a definition of the tall-tale presented over thirty years before Mark Twain's essay was published on the same subject. Third, the plot incorporates the university's "Dromgoole Myth" concerning a famous duel fought near Piney Prospect in Chapel Hill. The book became known as "The Freshman's Bible" in the latter nineteenth century and its influence probably had a bearing on the formation of the Order of the Gimghoul at The University of North Carolina and the construction there of Gimghoul Castle. Finally, elements of the Sea-Gift plot involving, first, a long train ride to enter college, and second, the burning of a plantation house by Yankee soldiers, may have influenced Thomas Wolfe and Margaret Mitchell in the writing of their later novels, Look Homeward, Angel and Gone With The Wind, respectively.
