On temporary possession in attributive use

asked 2015-09-15 04:44:44 -0400

I think the following sentence is grammatical. (I'm not a native speaker of English...)

(1) John has Bill's book.

Here, I suppose that Bill is a possessor of the book and John temporarily possesses's Bill's book.

This sentence is an instance of predicative possession, but can the same situation also be expressed in attributive possession as in (2)?

(2) John's Bill's book.

I have browsed some papers but I've not found this issue...
