Triumph of Blockade

S. Loyd, 1868
Today I would like to bring to your attention very old study of Sam Loyd, an American chess player and chess composer, puzzle author and recreational mathematician, which was published in 1868! 
It is a triumph of the blockade.
White is to move and despite that his position looks desperate from the first sight he makes a draw.
Have you got any idea what to do? 

The solution you will find on the following link: Solution.
