Dinesh , Magento do not save product publisher attribute and etc product attribute in sales_flat_order_item so you can not get publisher attribute value from order item

So need load Magento product Obeject (Mage::getModel('catalog/product')) by order item product($item->getProductId()) then you can this attribute value if product is exit in magento

  /* product is exiting in magento
    /* product has been deleted from  magento  so you can not get product data */
