    the lot of them

    I have never seen "the lot". Does it mean "the whole of something"?

    ex)...The dealers decided to assemble a list, "The 100 Greatest Paintings in the World". and to offer the lot of them to Ford. With one purchase he could make himself the world's greatest collector...

    Yes—or 'all of them'.
