There's no turnkey command, but you can do it manually.

You'll find a log of recent installations in several forms under /var/log:

/var/log/dpkg.log shows package status and version changes;
/var/log/apt/term.log shows a full log of console output during installations;
/var/log/aptitude shows installations (including upgrades)

The old packages might still be in /var/cache/apt/archives. Otherwise, you might be able to find a mirror that still has them..

after you find the version you are looking for, this should work:
dpkg -i /path/to/foo.deb

this is just something on top of my head .. hope it helps someone who is comes in looking for this in the future !! ::creepy:: [Idea]
