Stigler's History of Statistics is very enjoyable and walks you through the painful, groping arguments of Bernoulli, DeMoivre, Gauss, Laplace, etc as they sketched out the foundations of statistics.  I especially enjoy walking through a real problem as it was originally solved.  Sure you can get to the Law of Large Numbers in a handful of steps from Chebyshev's inequality, but it's so much more instructive to see how Bernoulli attacked the problem (unsuccessfully!).
