This resource features drawings from Ken Wilson's book describing how to make cylinder glass. The article featured in Building Early America titled  "Window Glass in America", written in 1974 by Ken Wilson, is a useful resource as well. It features illustrations and photographs of glass factories and stained window production along with a description of early techniques, sources and uses of glass windows, and types of glass windows. I also attached a general bibliography about window glass history - some will discuss early history, including cylinder glass. The video embedded below from Fremont Glass shows a modern version of making cylinder glass in a way that's reminiscent of ancient stained glass window making.
