That makes more sense.
Prope nihil aliud aliam iam habeo quam hunc pugionem
Prope nihil aliud aliam iam habeo quam hos libros

So, aliam can be eliminated from these two sentences also?
I have nearly nothing other than this dagger.
I have nearly nothing other than these books.

Not only can it be eliminated, but it should be. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to have it there.
