I don't know a lot about Robert Service, although it's my understanding that he sent his first book of poems home to Scotland, with a cheque, for them to pay a vanity press to publish, and the company got such a good reaction from people seeing the proofs that they offered him a contract. It sounds a bit apocryphal to me. There is no doubt that Unwin's came to be his publishers though.
