There are several copies of Rhodes’ Clay and Glazes for the Potter on archive.org. This one can be downloaded, but I’m not sure if it’s still under copyright. According to this post, it’s possible the copyright has expired, since it was published in 1957. If it’s still under copyright, we could link to the others on archive.org.
