Carl Boyer's A History of Mathematics, might be an enjoyable read. I've read the 1991 revised edition, ed. Uta C. Metzbach (New York: John Wiley, 1991). It's about 700 pages. The first 260 pages are dedicated to mathematics before the Renaissance, starting with ancient Egypt and dwelling at length on the ancient Greeks. The author narrates the history of pre-modern mathematics in an engaging style. For a specialist in the field, the history might be interesting.
