Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Eugene Field
  Illiterate as the lowliest hedger and ditcher.  1
  Placid as a hearthstone.  2
  Prodigious as the pyramid of Cheops.  3
  Ruddy and fresh as the waking morn.  4
  Shrank like a leaf in Fall.  5
  Human thought is like a monstrous pendulum: it keeps swinging from one extreme to the other.  6
The womenfolk are like the books,—most pleasing to the eye,
Whereon if anybody looks he feels disposed to buy.
