Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
John Taylor
 
  Barren as a stock-fish.  1
  Gentle as eve.  2
  Good as a comedy.  3
  Hiss like bottle(d) ale.  4
  Hungry as a hawk.  5
  Lustrous as the day.  6
  Nimble-fingered as a harper.  7
  Like snow at Midsummer, exceeding rare.  8
  Rough as a Russian bear.  9
  Welcome as dogs unto a church they are.  10
  To look as if he were hanged already.  11
