This copy without the ff.6 Sepher Habakook at end occasionally found bound in. “It is...very likely that the Sepher Habakook was printed by itself a month earlier and that copies of Masecheth Purim in which Sepher Habakook was found, merely had the two parodies bound together.” I. Davidson, Parody in Jewish Literature (1966) p.118
