The Beinecke has a large collection of fragments from Lambach Abbey, described in Robert Babcock’s Reconstructing a Medieval Library: Fragments from Lambach (1993) (Orbis). This fragment was purchased to demonstrate how the fragments were employed as binding material.  The library has two additional printed books from Lambach with Placidus’ monogram: Compendivm hebreae chaldeaeqvae[!] grammatices  per Matthaevm Avrigallvm (Wittenburg, 1525) (Orbis) and M. Tullii Ciceronis Orationum pars I-[III] / cum correctionibus P. Manutij, et annotationib. D. Lambini (Venice, 1570) (Orbis).
