Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Henry James
 
  Look as blank as a pickpocket.  1
  Calm—as if she were always sitting for her portrait.  2
  Chaste … as the veil of a nun.  3
  Durable as bronze.  4
  A face that was like an open letter in a foreign tongue.  5
  Formal … as the veil of a nun.  6
  As fresh as the fruit on the tree.  7
  Light … as cork.  8
  Trivial as the giggle of a housemaid.  9
