Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Baron Karl F. H. von Münchausen
 
  Blushing like a summer morning.  1
  Driven forth like a sky-rocket.  2
  Floating in the air like so many spiders upon their cobwebs.  3
  Globular like a hazel-nut.  4
  Horrible, like the shrieks of witches.  5
  Passed along the waves like the chariot of Neptune.  6
  Pendant like berries on the branches.  7
  Roars like a bull.  8
  Twines round it as the ivy does the ash.  9
  Quiet as at anchor in a dead calm.  10
