On the other hand, its spectral variations in the quiescent stage have not been well studied yet. This paper is probably the first report for the relation between the pulsation of the secondary Mira variable and the temperature of the primary hot component for V407 Cyg. The spectral variation in the post-outburst stage has been monitored to study the properties of this object. In the course of this work, we found some unexpected spectral variations around the light maximum of the secondary Mira variable in 2012. The relation between the mass transfer in the binary system and the pulsation of the secondary Mira variable is studied. High- and low-resolution optical spectra obtained at the Astronomical Observatories at Asiago were used. The photometric data depend on the database of the VSNET. Description: The calibrated low- and high-resolution spectra of V407 Cyg used in the article are presented. The spectra are given in the Fits format. The low- dispersion spectra are named as becNNNNN.fits, and the high-dispersion spectra as echNNNNN.fits, where NNNNN is the ID number of the spectra given in Table 1. The sensitivity of the spectrographs were calibrated using the spectra of the standard stars BD+40 4032 or HD192281 obtained during the same nights of the observations. The wavelengths are given in the heliocentric frame, and no correction is applied for the interstellar extinction.
