"The Illustrated History of Buddhism" is available from the Dhammananda Vihara in Half Moon Bay, California. 
In the first edition published by YMBA, the wording in Myanmar was by Mahagandayone Sayadaw Ashin Janabhivamsa with excellent drawings by world renowned artist Saya U Ba Kyi. YMBA later published English translations. With permission from YMBA, TBSA printed the version with bilingual text. Grape vine says that Saya U Ba Kyi observed precepts for 49 days before undertaking the project. 
A professor from Stanford University once expressed his desire to use the book as a text/reference provided an ISBN number is available for the University bookstore to order/stock copies.
 "U Silananda Memorial Book" is also available at Dhammananda Vihara.
