Not sure if this is quite what you were looking for.  But, using the  
following command, I still only got 1 copy from the Toshiba printer:

lp -p <printer_name> -n 2 <file>

This command *did* yield 2 copies on the HP printer, though.  The  
command Brian suggested only gave me an error when trying to specify a  
page count.
