Esar Levine (1899-?) was an American publisher and owner with his brother Benjamin of the imprints Panurge Press, Falstaff Press and Robin Hood House. In 1926, he was convicted and imprisoned for trafficking in obscene books as a result of his attempts to publish Frank Harris's My Life and Loves. Subsequently Harris dedicated the third volume of My Life and Loves to Levine:

“To Esar Levine, who has suffered imprisonment for his affection to me and devotion to my welfare, I dedicate this third volume of My Life. It is the best I have to give to the best and bravest of friends, and whatever value it has is due in great part to his help and counsel. Frank Harris. Nice, 1926.”"[1]
