Johann Homann's map of Western Africa.

Anybody up for a Latin translation?:

Gvinea propia, nec non Nigritiæ vel Terræ Nigrorvm maxima pars : geographis hodiernis dicta utraq[ue] Æthiopia inferior, & hujus quidem pars australis / ex delineationibus Anvillianis itineri guineensi D. de Marchais insertis secundum leges projectionis stereographicæ Hasianæ designata & edita studio & labore Homannianorum Heredum. Norimb. cum privil. S.C.M. A. 1743 = La Gvinee de meme que la plus grande partie du Pais des Negres : appellées par les geographes modernes Ethiopie inferievre & meridionale / tirées des morceaux geographiques de Mr. d'Anville, qu'il a inseres au voyage du Chev. de Marchais, & puis desinées suivant les loix de la nouvelle projection de feu Mr. le Prof. Has, par les Heritiers d'Homan A. 1743.
(looks like some French in there, too, but what do I know... I went to a State school.)
