Foliation in red ink 1-20 on the recto-leaves, between the columns. Original foliation 513-531.
Written in double columns except for f. 1 (inserted later on Árni Magnússon's request) which is which is written in one column.
There are no chapter headings, but each chapter has a number, and blank spaces are left empty for large initials. Blanks taking up a half column on f. 2v and 3r, respectively, and a whole column on f. 12 have been left to mark lacunae; f. 18v has a blank space to mark a smaller lacuna. After the end of the saga a half column is left blank.
Grey cardboard binding from 1730-1780. On the cover of the front board a handwritten note gives the running title and the content of the manuscript: 1) Ivents Saga 2) Parcevals Saga 3) Valvers Saga. The handwriting of the note is identical to the one in AM 180 e fol.. It has been suggested that Grímur Thorkelin is the scribe but this cannot be determined definitively when comparing the script to that of AM 449 4to (Inger Jakobsen Kudahl, personal communication júlí 2004). Kålund added the following note to the upper pastedown: 20 blade (+ 1 AMsk seddel) 15/1 86. Size of binding: 304 mm x 197 mm x 6 mm.
AM 181 a-l fol. once belonged to the same codex but they were divided into smaller components and AM 181 d and g-l fol. are now transferred to Iceland.
