There are also tons of things in these archives that I have written from time to time and you should start there. Dave is also right that Scholes has some good basics as does "A textbook of Glass Technology" by Hodkin and Cousen from back around 1915. I may give a very short course at the conference, and I may not since I anticipate being a little harried.
And this is not meant to put you off, I just don't like glossing over stuff so I don't want to write a treatise right now. I will however sell you one when I finish it.
Definately post when you are finished with your book Pete, I'd be interested in one. As to your class I'm thinking it will be out of my league right now, but maybe in a year or two I'll make it to one.
