Look inside the book:

He thus transgresses one of the oldest and soundest rules of scientific nomenclature, and ignores the fact that the name Swastika has been employed for this sign in the Sanskrit language (the etymology of the word naturally gave it the name Svastika, sv-good or well, asti-to be or being, or it is) and that two thousand and more years of use in Asia and Europe had sanctioned and sanctified that as its name.

...This character has continued into modern times, and while the Swastika is recognized as a holy and sacred symbol by at least one Buddhistic religious sect, it is still used by the common people of India, China, and Japan as a sign of long life, good wishes, and good fortune.

...Max Ohnefalsch-Richter speaking of the Swastika position, either of crossed legs or arms, among the Hindus, suggests as a possible explanation that these women bore the Swastikas upon theirPg 773 arms as did the goddess Aphrodite, in fig. 8 of his writings, (see fig. 180 in the present paper), and when they assumed the position of arms crossed over their breast, the Swastikas being brought into prominent view, possibly gave the name to the position as being a representative of the sign.
