This is Diagram 174, Black to Move, p. 67 in How to Force Checkmate (Formerly titled Challenge to Chessplayers) by Fred Reinfeld. Dover Publications, Inc., first published in 1958, New York, NY 10014

Answer: 1...R-K8ch; 2 RxR [or 2 QxR Q-Kt7 mate] Q-R8 mate. "Note how the Rook immolates himself to clear the Bishop's diagonal."

43.Qf1 would have slowed Black down a bit.
