Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Thomas Nash
 
  Bare as my nail.  1
  Broad as a furred stomacher.  2
  Pierced like lightning.  3
  Pointed as a poniard.  4
  Red as a lobster.  5
  Simper like a porrage pot in the fire when it first begins to seethe.  6
  Soft as the back of a swan.  7
  Stale as sea-beef.  8
  Swift as mercury.  9
  Thick as oatmeal.  10
  Lilly-white as a lady’s marrying smock.  11
