In the 80s, FASA had handbooks for the five major houses. Black covers with the House Logos on the cover. In the 90s, there are handbooks for the Houses as well, but I can only find House Marik, Davion, and Steiner.
First, are the newer ones updated versions of the older ones? It looks like the 80s ones update the houses covered up to 3025. Do the newer ones bring them up to 3039 or 3050, or something to that effect.
Second, was there not a newer Handbook House Kurita and Handbook House Liao made?
Third, the Handbooks are different from the Field Manuals, correct? I am under the impression that the Handbooks focus more on the history of the Houses, while the Field Manuals focus more on the House militaries. Is that correct?
