I bought this off of a press-kit supplier on eBay for about $3.50 many years back after winning an auction for an A Perfect Circle Press Kit and sending an e-mail asking the dealer what else he had.  Has a bunch of interesting commentary from the band and apparently where the "lachrymology" thing orignated.

Tool Snail-Mail Newsletter #1 (Front)

Back before the internet was a big thing, you could write to the band from an address listed in the CD manual.  They would reply back with a canned newsletter (much more informative than the stuff Blair writes these days) and merchandise ordering form.  This newletter mentions a list of suggested books for fans of Tool, artwork by Adam, and included a setlist of upcoming tour dates.
