did you try ean or ean13?

note ean does not accept embedded hyphens, but isbn does.

some examples:

 %      ./barcode -E -o isbn_10.eps -e isbn -b '0-425-15488-2'
 %     ./barcode -E -o isbn_13.eps -e isbn -b '978-0-7653-4262-1'
./barcode: can't encode "978-0-7653-4262-1"
no good

%     ./barcode -E -o isbn_13.eps -e isbn  -b 9780765342621
./barcode: can't encode "9780765342621"
no good

 %      ./barcode -E -o isbn-as-ean.eps  -e ean -b  '978-0-7653-4262-1'
./barcode: can't encode "978-0-7653-4262-1"
no good

 but this one works
 %     ./barcode -E -o isbn-as-ean.eps  -e ean -b  9780765342621
and the eps file looks like an isbn-10 (aka isbn 13) barcode
