The item always appears on the ground, never in your inventory. Just don't read it when there's monsters around.

And yeah, read it as soon as possible. Practically speaking, the odds that you'll get something useful are higher in the early game, when you have less good equipment in general. In the late game there'll be ego items coming out your ears anyway, so Acquirement won't be likely to generate anything special.
