Try this:

svn mkdir svn+ssh://server/LFS/branches/6.1/ -m 'create 6.1 dir'

svn cp svn+ssh://server/LFS/trunk/BOOK \
       svn+ssh://server/LFS/branches/6.1/BOOK \
       -m "Creating a 6.1 release branch"

svn cp won't create missing directories, and this cryptic error
message won't help either. With newer client you should get an error
message like this:

svn: '/foo/!svn/bc/141/not_exists' path not found
