BUCHINGER, Matthew (1674-1740). Two Matthew Buchinger Engravings. One, a portrait of the celebrated "Little man of Nuremberg,” published in 1804, and measuring 7 x 5". Some toning, right margin trimmed unevenly, one tear to upper margin, some edgewear. [Together with:] Matthew Buchinger portrait engraving. [London: R. Grave, ca. 1790]. Full-length image of Buchinger, who, despite being born without hands or feet, could execute trick bowling shots, engrave intricate portraits, and perform sleight-of-hand tricks. Upper and lower margins trimmed a bit close, with loss of caption beneath image. 4 ½ x 4 ¼”, mounted onto a larger sheet of paper (7 ½ x 4 ½”). Bookseller’s embossed stamp at upper right corner of mount, with a later (1859) gift inscription on verso, some soiling to mount. An excellent pair.
