First U.S. Census From 1791 To Be Auctioned At Sotheby's
The 56-page document is expected to fetch $50,000 to $70,000 when it is sold at Sotheby's on April 14.
The census covered the population of the nation's 13 states and Southwest Territory, breaking it down by state and county.
The state population is listed according to five categories: free white males 16 years and upward, free white males under 16, free white females, all other free persons and slaves. The county breakdown is the same except it starts with free white males 21 years old instead of 16.
