Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
John Burroughs
  Awkward as a man in a bag.  1
  Grooved like the sunken spaces between the fingers.  2
  Inherent as the sheen of a bird’s plumage, as the texture of a flower’s petal.  3
  Secluded as a chimney corner.  4
  Subtle as the tone of the voice or the glance of the eye.  5
