Adolf Hitler handwritten document, signed ''Adolf Hitler'' while a twenty-year-old resident of Vienna, Austria, a time that solidified his anti-semitic views. After rejection by The Academy of Fine Arts, he led a transient existence as an impoverished and mentally unstable young adult, ultimately becoming homeless about four months from the time of this document. Here, as Viennese law required, he registers a change of address with the government. He fills in all the fields of the partially-printed ''Meldzettel'' form in his hand, dating it 22 August 1909 and listing his residence as ''Room 21/ 58 Sechshauserstrasse, Vienna''. For his occupation, he calls himself a ''Schriftsteller'', meaning writer. Hitler lived at that address from 20 August to 16 September 1909. No further records exist until his application to the Asylum for the Shelterless in December of that year. Single page on blue-green paper features an official police stamp and measures 12'' x 9''. Tears and minor paper loss to the right corners and remnants of mounting to verso. Very good condition. An historically important document filling in details of Hitler's transient life as a young adult - the ''what if'' time period, had his life pivoted in any other direction. Recently sold for $33,650 as lot 197 in Bonhams 27 March 2012 sale.
