T. Fisher Unwin was the London publishing house founded by Thomas Fisher Unwin, husband of British Liberal politician Jane Cobden in 1882.[1]

The latterly more famous Stanley Unwin (his nephew) started his career by working in his uncle's firm. In 1914 Stanley Unwin purchased a controlling interest in the firm George Allen and Sons, and established George Allen and Unwin, later to become Allen and Unwin.

Unwin retired to his home in Sussex in 1926, following which his publishing house merged with Ernest Benn Limited.[1]
