It's a documentation bug.

The 'svn' command-line client only supports '--no-diff-deleted'. But
the 'svnlook' command (which is a repository examination tool rarely
used by non-admins) supports '--no-diff-added' as well. However, this
support was never put in the 'svn' client, deliberately if I recall
correctly. However, if you think the 'svn' client should support it,
please post to dev@ and explain the use case, we could reconsider.

I've fixed the book in r2881 (of the book). The next edition should
have the correction.

Thanks for posting about this!
