ls /var/cache/apt/archives

should have your previous version, if you haven't 'apt-get clean'ed.

apt-cache policy <packagename>

will show the versions available for download from your apt sources, the
priority of each, the currently installed version, and the best
candidate for installation, according to your preferences.

good times,
Vineet
