Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Dion Boucicault
  How absurd you must have looked with your legs and arms in the air, like a shipwrecked tea-table.  1
  Affection, like the nut within the shell, wants freedom.  2
  Black as a young rook.  3
  A red bag, fat with your unpaid bills, like a landing net.  4
  Stick to her point like a fox to his own tail.  5
  As wild as game in July.  6
