Haybarn Press: "As sixth in her series on women of Antiquity and mythology ... Judith [is] an interpretation with text and seventeen drawings by Elaine Galen. The drawings, most in color, follow a hand-printed frontispiece." Wikipedia (accessed 10/22/15): "The story revolves around Judith, a daring and beautiful widow, who is upset with her Jewish countrymen for not trusting God to deliver them from their foreign conquerors. She goes with her loyal maid to the camp of the enemy general, Holofernes, with whom she slowly ingratiates herself, promising him information on the Israelites. Gaining his trust, she is allowed access to his tent one night as he lies in a drunken stupor. She decapitates him, then takes his head back to her fearful countrymen. The Assyrians, having lost their leader, disperse, and Israel is saved.
