Welcome to iPhoneForums!

Error 48 means that there are problems with your network connection. Make sure your Wi-Fi doesn't disconnect when your iPhone is connected to iTunes.

It looks like the previous owner forgot his passcode and tried too often to enter it. I hope this doesn't also mean the iPhone is also still locked to his/her iCloud account. In that case, you will have to contact the one who owned it before, and ask him to remove the iPhone from his/her iCloud account.

To get a disabled iPhone working again, you have to erase the iPhone. The instructions are here: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204306
