You want to use "limit".

As for storing all the results, there most likely isn't a reason to, however
if you must do it that way (perhaps you have a << and >> button or something
to step through), then I suggest you save the __row ID's only__ in a
$_SESSION array variable and do a SELECT via the ID (and "LIMIT 1" can't
hurt either in case you're storing a SKU_ID or some other unique key but
it's not a primary key) as you're stepping. This way your bulky query is
only done once. This is a more advanced technique however and may be
confusing to you if you don't know what you're doing. 

You can also pull all these items faster on subsequent pages by doing an
"WHERE item.id IN ($myarray)" type of deal (pseudo code of course).
