Max number of files to transfer

Is it possible to make rsync only transfer a maximum amount of files at 
one time. I want to do this to make the initial set up time of the 
filelist before transfer to be reasonably predictable.

Rsync is basically going to transfer from one mailbox to another mailbox 
but I want to be able to only transfer say 50 files at a time. I know 
this can be solved by controlling the number of files in the source 
directory but was wondering if there is anyway to achieve this using 
rsync itself.

Thanks in advance,
