Seeing that these are png images, the following worked for me:

In bash, run the commands

  mkdir gratzer
  cd gratzer
  for N in `jot 31 57`
    wget http://anziamj.austms.org.au/JAMSA/V52/Part1/Gratzer/p00$N.png
  open *

This opens all 31 downloaded png files in one Preview.app window (works 
on 10.5; for 10.4 I am not so sure.)

Then select all pages with cmd-A in the sidebar and choose File->Print 
selected pages. Print to pdf, and you have a nice 31 page pdf file.
