Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
William Archer
 
  Feverishly accelerated like the movements we see in a cinematograph.  1
  Clash and clang like glaives at … Stiklastad.  2
  Dead as Aristophanes.  3
  Dragged out like a languishing concertina.  4
  More evanescent than the rainbow.  5
  Fades like an unfixed photograph.  6
  Fill like a rush of wind and shaft of sunshine.  7
  Graceful as a fairy-tale.  8
  Jarred on the ear like a squeaking lead-pencil.  9
  Motionless, like the sun over Avalon.  10
  Ransacked like an old workbox.  11
  Stirs the blood like trumpet-blast.  12
  Unjust, like the Jedburgh judges of Border history, it first hangs the prisoner and then tries him.  13
  White as bismuth.  14
