Eliot R. Brown Schematics & Other Art

This thread was created by me (Andy E. Nystrom) on CxPulp on 10-14-2015, 04:38 PM and will be expanded as time permits. While Capes (Optional) material from replies are missing, the core reference post is intact.
Other than perhaps Josef Rubenstein, who inked most or all of the Handbook entries in the 1980s and 1990s run, the artist most linked to the Handbooks is Eliot R. Brown with his maps and equipment schematics. This thread will track all of his art in the Handbooks to the present as his art is likely of particular interest. Other than the first series, clarifications of new or reprint will be noted. Only the Handbooks and Encyclopedias will be covered, not the Files books.
Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe (first series)
Interestingly, in the first series he rarely drew the maps, focusing more on building/vehicle/equipment schematics. Collaborators if any noted for this series but not later series where he was often the artist for the sub-entry only.
