I think you can. Try specifying the following "VERSIONS => 4"|

Its also documented in the HBase shell documentation for Get (and I am assuming the same would apply for scans)|

get       Get row or cell contents; pass table name, row, and optionally a dictionary of column(s), timestamp and versions.  Examples: hbase> get 't1', 'r1' hbase> get 't1', 'r1', {COLUMN => 'c1'} hbase> get 't1', 'r1', {COLUMN => ['c1', 'c2', 'c3']} hbase> get 't1', 'r1', {COLUMN => 'c1', TIMESTAMP => ts1} hbase> get 't1', 'r1', {COLUMN => 'c1', TIMESTAMP => ts1, \ VERSIONS => 4}
 
Regards,
Dhaval

It seems that the answer is no, but I just wanted to make sure I didn't
miss something. As far as I can tell, scanning a column on a time range
returns just the most recent value within that time range, rather than all
the values in the range.

Thanks,
Natty
