Almosnino left several manuscripts unpublished. The author himself several times alludes to his work P’nei Moshe (see eg. ff. 85r., 108v.). Of scientific interest is Almosnino’s commentary on the Hebrew translation of the Sphera Mundi entitled Beth Elo-him. See M. Waxman, A History of Jewish Literature, Vol. I (1933) p. 319
