George Fyler Townsend (1814 - 1900)
Reverend George Fyler Townsend (1814-1900) was the translator of the standard English edition of Aesop's Fables. Although there are more modern collections and translations, Townsend's volume of 350 fables introduced the practice of stating a succinct moral at the conclusion of each story, and continues to be influential. Several editions were published in his lifetime, and others since.
