Buchmann became well known as a result of his 1864 book Geflügelte Worte, Der Zitatenschatz des Deutschen Volkes, a collection of quotations. Specifically, the book (the title of which, loosely translated, is "Winged Words") included literary quotes that had become part of common speech. The book was such a lively popular that every year a new edition was initially required.
He died 24 February 1884 in Schöneberg.
