A later hand added a heading on f. 1r: חלק שלישי. Appears to include portions not yet published anywhere. Bernstein's edition first published in 1937 is incomplete and inaccurate. Cf. J. Targarona Borrás, "el Diwán de Shelomoh de Piera", in: J. Targarona and A. Sáenz-Badillos (eds.), Jewish Studies at the Turn of the Twentieth Century (Leiden 1999), pp. 541-551, who was unaware of the existence of this manuscript. The text of the correspondence with Moses ibn Abbas on ff. 62v-84v was published from another almost identical source by A.M. Habermann, in Otsar Yehude Sefarad, 7 (1964), pp. 28-41.
