I don't know of one, and I did look quite carefully a while back
(though for an interpreter, not a parser).

The Mozilla project has two implementations -- one in C
(SpiderMonkey), one in Java (called Rhino).  Presumably they export a

Rhino, or SWIG, boost python, ctypes, or whatever to get at the C

Let us know if you do it.
