Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
George Colman, the Younger
 
  Amorous as an Arcadian.  1
  Black as the devil.  2
  Chilly as a bottle of port in a hard frost.  3
  Close as your jacket.  4
  Close as a pill-box.  5
  Confident as justice.  6
  Drunk as a lord.  7
                Face,
Long as a courtier’s out of place.
  8
  Lovely as day.  9
  Mild as an emulsion.  10
  Muddy as a little pigeon-toed drummer after a long march.  11
  Nimble as quicksilver.  12
  Plain as a demonstration in Euclid.  13
  Rave like a man in Bedlam.  14
  Rich as Pluto.  15
  Sleek as a dray horse.  16
