Cannot Restore Previous Revision of File Deleted from Repository

I have one project---`/var/repo/proj/dejgen/`---which I accidentally
deleted from both the repository (`svn rm /var/repo/proj/dejgen/`)
*and* the working copy (`rm -rf ./dejgen/`) simultaneously. The `svn
rm` commit was revision 13 in this particular Subversion repository;
the original files for this project were imported at around revision
10. When I try to run `svn co /var/repo/proj/dejgen/@12 .` to get
revision 12, the one just prior to my accidental `svn rm`, I receive
the following error message:

> svn: File not found: revision 13, path '/dejgen'

My understanding of Subversion is that even `svn rm` should allow the
project to be checked out from an earlier revision, and I'm eager to
recover what I accidentally deleted. Any suggestions or
clarifications ye could offer would be greatly appreciated.
