Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Edith Wharton
  Bowed to them like a tree in a storm.  1
  Flowed by like the streaming images of sleep.  2
  Meaningless as the boom of waves in a drowning head.  3
  Offensive … as a smell of cooking in the drawing room.  4
  Rosy as the candle-shade.  5
  Imagination shrouded, like the drawing-room furniture.  6
  A smile that was like sunrise on a sea strewn with wreckage.  7
  Fitted as snugly as bits in a puzzle.  8
  Unappetizing as the remains of a feast.  9
