An excellent book that I would recommend to anyone interested in the processes of glass blowing as it gives good and accurate information that is well illustrated.

Oh, it also shows an astonishing range of bottles including ceramic from Peru long before Europeans reached the Americas. I think the table of contents give a great insight!
