There are two possibilities:

A) Gather all of the images together into one folder, select them all  
and then "Open with -> Preview" from the contextual menu, then print.  
This puts all of the files together into one master document, if I  
remember correctly. YMMV

B) If you convert them to postscript, then you could use "psmerge - 
oOutfile.ps.new *.ps" and then "ps2pdf14 Outfile.ps.new" from the  
command line.

Either one should work fine, although the Preview route would require  
less stress.

I could probably write you a script to grab all of the images using  
"curl" but that's going overboard, unless you have many pages and need  
to do this many times.
