There's also the (tiny?) quibble that if you consider Ezra/Nehemiah to be 
two separate books, no fragment of Nehemiah has been found.

One should also bear in mind that "represented" is the operative word 
here.  Some books (mostly famously Isaiah) are complete or nearly so.  
Most others far less so; some are represented by only a few lines.
