Something like this should do it:

svn log --stop-on-copy -r 1:HEAD | less

or

svn log --stop-on-copy -r 1:HEAD <URL> | less

This starts with the rev that created the current directory (specify it
by URL if you don't have it checked out), and passes the results through
less, so you'll only get a single page listed.
