If you notice, there are not Version is not a column in the library. If you go to Version History of a document then check out the URL, you will notice it looks like this:
http://<site>/<subsite>/_layouts/Versions.aspx?list={GUID}&ID=<DocID>&FileName=<docname>&Source=<source>

So, you cannot simply make a receive connection the library to retrieve the information. I do not know of any web services to accomplish this either. I did find this resource that discusses how to accomplish this with Word and SharePoint with custom code.

There is a versions web service that you might be able to retrieve this information from. You would have to know the list GUID for sure, maybe the doc id.
