Nicolas Sanson's map of Western Africa and the Sahara desert.

Any native French speaker want to help me out with this?:

L'Afrique, ou Lybie ulterieure : ou font le Saara, or desért, le pays des Negres, la Guinee, et les pays circonv., tirée en partie de Sanut, et de l'Arabe du Nubie : en partie de diverses cartes veues, jusques a present : la coste de Negres, et Guinee, &c. est apres les observations de Samuel Blomart / par le S. Sanson d'Abbeville, geogr. ordre du Roy : avec priuilège [i.e. privilège] du Roy pour vingt ans : I. Somer Pruthenus Scupl.
A handsome map, all-told. I like it quite a bit.
