To the list that Ms Murphy offered the following should be added.  
They are not biblical manuscripts, but they are citations of 
Leviticus found in some nonbiblical documents.

4QD(a)  has Halakah on Lev 13 and 15; pub. by Milik in Revue Biblique 

4QtLev is a Targum of Leviticus 16:12-21 (vss 16-17 missing due to 
lacuna); pub in DJD 6 p.87.

11QMelch offers 3 passages: Lev 25:9, 10(?) and 13.  Pub. by van der 
Woude in "Oudtestamentische Studien" 14 (1965) p. 354-373.
