problem for a non native reader to understand the manual

Hi.
Please help me, I am currently studiing the manual and have problems to
understand the following:

In Subv. The Definitive Guide, Draft, Rev 5113 on top of page 18.

arguments to the -- revision switch...
...
BASE The "pristine" revision of an item in a working copy

I don't understand the word "pristine". Pristine means new according to
"The Oxford Dictionary", so is this the latest item in the working
directory?

On page 28:

(Bullet) For every conflicted file, Subversion places three extra files
in your working copy:
...
filename.*.mine ok, that seems clear, that is the file in my working
copy with my latest changes made locally.

filename.*.rOLDREV ?? Than that must be a copy of the above before I
made local changes

filename.*.rNEWREV This must be the latest file in the repository, am I
right?

Please help me a bit since I am confused about the word "pristine" in
BASE. This is only for native speakers to know:(.

Despite, Subversion is a great product, I installed the server on my
Mac and plan to user the client for SW development on Linux. I have no
data in the repostiry yet, but the svn command line tool on Linux
already indicates that my repository works and has a revision 0 content
(what means to me that everything is up and working) :)

Greetings from germany,
Robert
