Angelo Secchi (1818–1878) was an Italian Jesuit who made relevant scientific contributions in geophysics, meteorology, and astrophysics. He was a well-known pioneer in solar physics due to his theories and observations. Secchi published Le Soleil (The Sun) a summary of knowledge about our star in that time. Moreover, he published in this book his sunspot and prominence observations made during the period 1871–1875. In this work, we present a machine-readable version of these observations and a preliminary analysis of them.
