A WELSH Government project, the Library of Wales, created to ensure that Wales's literary heritage written in English was made available to modern audiences, has reached its 50,000th sale.

Titles selected for the Library of Wales are unavailable, out-of- print, or merely forgotten, and published by Parthian.

They range from well-known classics by Raymond Williams, Gwyn Thomas and Dannie Abse, to forgotten works such as Lewis Jones's Cwmardy, and Turf or Stone, the "Welsh Wuthering Heights", by Margiad Evans.

Elwyn Jones, chief executive of the Welsh Books Council, said: "The success of the series highlights the importance of our long-standing literary tradition here in Wales."
