French Translation of Vitelleschi's work "lettere annue dell' etiopia dell' anni 1626 e 1627". Annual Jesuit letters about their influence in Ethiopia, etc.
Original Italian, here: http://books
pp. 10ff Has Portuguese Patriarch Alphonso Mendez's description of a disputation he had with Solomon of Vienna, a Jew, who challenged him publicly in Abyssinia. This is mentioned by Aescoly in page 258 of Sefer Ha-Falashim as evidence that the discription in Mendez's Latin memoir (reprinted in 1908) was historically accurate.
On the importance of such correspondence, see: http://books.google.com/books?id=ekdFAAAAYAAJ&lpg=RA1-PA39&ots=IGscAKgqPg&dq=lettere%20annue%20dell'%20etiopia%20dell'%20anni%201626%20e%201627&pg=RA1-PA35#v=onepage&q=lettere%20annue%20dell'%20etiopia%20dell'%20anni%201626%20e%201627&f=false
