I've never heard of using 2 mirrors either. Everything I can find on the net talks about using 1 mirror - not a single mention of 2. Besides I haven't a clue as to how you would use 2 mirrors anyway. If they reflected on each other you would have infinite images which would probably not be what the artist wanted - at least for a typical self portrait. Could the 2 have been a typo when they really meant 1?
In looking this up I discovered this article
about Rembrandt using mirrors and lenses for his self portraits and tracing the image. It also speaks of only 1 mirror with a diagram.
