Endgame Study #3 - White to Move

Studies are an entertaining way to learn the principles of endgame play. The carefully arranged positions allow the composer to isolate and emphasize the ideas at work.

This study was published in 1357 End-Game Studies by Harold Lommer and was composed by A. Hall. Mr. Hall's biography is unknown to me, but Mr. Lommer also published 1234 Modern End-Game Studies with M.A. Sutherland.

Black has the biggest gun and White might easily be swindled into resigning. Can you find a way out of this mess for White?
