I think s/e must be a misprint here for s/a: in other words, "sin año", meaning that the date of publication does not appear on the book. The equivalent abbreviation normally used in English bibliography is "n.d.", for "no date". I've checked library catalogue references for this book, and I can only find one edition, whose publication details are listed as "La Habana: Fernández y Cía, [s.a.]" Besides, I deal with bibliography quite a lot and I have never seen "s/e" for "second edition".

The Library of Congress record gives the date as 1955 in square brackets, meaning that that date is known to be correct but is not given in the book itself: http://lccn.loc.gov/57031350

agree  Bubo Coromandus: 1955 was date of 1st publication, not 2nd edition "Su Doctrina Negra de 1955 le fue pedida al autor por la National Association for the Advancement of the Color People..." http://debates-makandal.blogspot.com/2008/12/qui-fue-juan-re...
