I remember first coming across this study back in the 60's in ' A Chess Mind' a thoughtful book by the strong English amateur player Gerald Abrahams who scored 1.5 - .5 against the Soviet player Ragozin in the 1946 Anglo-Soviet radio match. This study is well known among those interested in endgames and I think it is very beautiful.

I have just come across it again in a book called '1234 Modern Chess Endings', at least they were modern when the book was published in 1938, most of the content dates from the inter-war years, though some are from a few years earlier.
