Dumas, Alexandre: Chicot the Jester, v.1, 23 June 2008.
Chicot the Jester (1846)
An anonymous, abridged translation of ‘La dame de Monsoreau.’ There doesn’t seem to be a complete English translation, but this is 138,500 words.

This is the second of Dumas’s three Valois Romances The others are ‘Marguerite de Valois’ (already uploaded) and ‘The Forty-Five Guardsmen’ which I shall be working on later this week.
NB The source text had a number of errors, which I have corrected. If you find any more, then please PM me so that I can upload a revised version.
