I made a pull request to add your imagery (after adding a missing closing
brace in your json file):

The shell commands to do it were:

git clone https://github.com/ericfischer/editor-imagery-index.git
cd editor-imagery-index/
git branch nls
git checkout nls
cp ~/NLS-BartholomewHalfInch1897-1907.json sources/europe
vi sources/europe/NLS-BartholomewHalfInch1897-1907.json
git status
git add imagery.geojson imagery.json imagery.xml
git commit
git push -u origin nls
