Question from Vicky - Deux gentilhommes-poètes de la cour de Henry VIII

I've just come across this "Deux gentilhommes-počtes de la cour de Henry VIII (1891)" on ( Is it a secondary source, is it in English, and is it useful and trustworthy?

Thanks for any help anyone can offer.

It is a late 19th century source and is written in French. I've used it a lot in my research on George and it has been very useful because Bapst does draw on primary sources. My French is not too bad but you could always try running bits through Google translate to get the general gist. allow you to read it online as a book or as "full text" so that you can copy and paste bits out for translating. The parts on Henry Howard are also interesting.

Thank you. Does he draw on French primary sources?
