This has been my main id book when it comes to Barbie and the markings, unfortunately it only shows the Barbie dolls sold in USA so non of the German or European dolls are shown here, but still it's the best there is.

This was my very first Barbie book, and it also shows the markings.

Sarah Sink Eames's book are imo the collector's bible when it comes to the Barbie outfits, I couldn't have done without it.

This is a must if you are going to id the MOD Barbie outfits.

Vol III shows outfits newer than my collection but I still needed it.

Steffanie Deutsch I bought because I thought I could use it to identify the contemporary Barbie dolls sold in Europe, unfortunately it shows the dolls in the boxes and I often find them without outfits, and the markings of the dolls are not in the book.

Barbie and her MOD, MOD, MOD, MOD world of fashion by Joe Blitman shows the outfits from 1967-72. I got this as a supplement to Sarah Sink Eams Vol II because Joe knows more about the shoes where Sarah only mentions one possibility and often there are more than one kind of shoes to the outfits.

By Glenn Mandeville showing not only Barbie but also a lot of other dolls like the pre Barbie dolls by Horsman, Revlon etc. There's a little about Tressy, Penny Brite and others.

By Paris and Susan Manos, they call it a value guide but there's a lot of nice pictures.

Beth Summers made this book about the Barbie doll from 1981-1991 and I often find outfits from this era and have friends collecting this type of modern dolls so even though I don't collect them myself I can easily use the book

By Glenn Mandeville, a lot of color pictures but also black/white pictures, not only about Barbie but also Tressy and the LIttlechap family.

This too is a very large book by Janine Fennick with lots of beautiful pictures of both vintage and modern Barbie dolls.

This book is larger than my scan so not all images are visible. This is authorized by Mattel and has a lot of pretty pictures of both vintage and modern Barbie dolls.

Polly & Pam Judd made a very interesting book imo again mostly black & white pictures but lots of info and mostly for clone dolls.

Cindy Sabulis & Susan Weglewski Collector's Guide to Tammy ID & Values is okay when it comes to Tammy dolls but the Tammy clone part is no good, I know more about the dolls shown there than the autors does and I think they should have done a bit more research about the dolls they choose to show.

John Axe is the author here and sadly most pictures are black/white but still a good informative book about Tammy and her family.

Don Jensen's book is nice if you're into Horsman dolls but I only needed a few pages in the book but that's okay, I found what I was looking for.

Kathy Moreau's book about Fashion dolls from the 60's. This is where I learned about the Faerie Glen doll on Tina Cassini body.

Patricia R Smith Teen Dolls ID and value Guide. I had some scanned pictures from this book but didn't know which book they were from till a friend notified me. The content is in black & white only - sadly - but very informative if you are a clone collector like me.

Silke Knaak's book about Bild Lili is a nice book and has a lot of good pictures of Lili and a little about the dolls shown on the front.

I found this book in London and wanted it to see if there were other dolls mentioned than Sindy and there's not many fiting my collection but it's still an interesting book.

Colette Mansell's book about Sindy, I don't collect Sindy but often find outfits that I believe are for her in Denmark so I'll treasure this as a way to identify these outfits.

Here I'll show the book I use for identification, I know some of them are value guides as well but I can't really use that, since some of the books are outdated, and if I want to see the actually value right now on a doll or an outfit I go to ebay and search the completed auctions.
I just bought a batch of books from a former collector and some of them I'll show here.

I got this dress on an Evergreen doll named "Gitta", which came mint in box. I'm not 100% sure, but I think it has a picture of it on the side of the box.

Hi, maybe you misread the name Sandy, she is called the Japanese Tammy but it is SANDY and not SINDY.
