Summary:
Published copy of the second edition of Beltrán's Maya grammar (Merida de Yucatan: J. D. Espinosa, 1859), with annotations and corrections by C. Hermann Berendt in red ink and pencil, perhaps a rough draft of those found in Copy 1 of this item. The printed text is followed by a manuscript index (pp. [243-250]) to the printed text, in which most of the entries are Maya words or syllables. This copy has been trimmed more than Copy 1, leaving it with relatively narrow margins.
