Paul Eudel (1837-1911) was a French art collector and columnist. In 1878, he moved to Paris and contributed to many newspapers such as L’Opinion, Modern Life, Le Figaro, Le Temps and L’Illustration. In 1886 he applied, unsuccessfully, for Legion d’Honneur. He wrote several works on different subjects including a travel diary to Constantinople, Smyrna, and Athens (1885).
He was very interested in Islamic arts of North Africa. In 1902 he wrote this work, followed in 1904 by a diary of travel from Algiers to Bou Saada, and in 1906 a Dictionary of the Jewels of North Africa, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Tripoli (1906).
