I've been (more than just) interested in dinosaurs for as long as I
can remember. My first book on the mesozoic was the first book I
still remember owning and reading myself (I must have been no older
than 5 years old I guess). This book - which is a Dutch translation,
so probably based on some English or American book printed at the
very least one or two years earlier - called Apatosaurus by its
"correct" name and mentioned that it also used to be called
Brontosaurus too but that this was no longer the right name for it.
And I'm a 1973 model human being, so do the math yourself... ;-)
