Because the module is not part of the standard library.

Like most languages Python has a standard library that
ships with the interpreter. Anything beyond that has
to be downloaded/installed. Those extras are not part
of the standard library and therefore are not documented
on the official site.

Usually the third party module will have some kind
of web site with its own documentation.

The simplest way is just to load the documentation
page into a browser and print to a PDF file. There
seems to only be one file so that should be all
you need to do.
