Thanks for the response.  Someone else on the list resent the photo you originally posted.  With that I was able to find it online, but it was in a list of discontinued book shelves.  Sigh ...
Look like the leatherettes fit perfectly in the shelf.

Oh, sorry! I just realized that you already checked for the bookcases I used. I was not impressed with the Billy system when I checked it out. I found that the best solution was to bring a few books with me and try to put them in, rather than to guess about the depth. It can be a frustrating trip if you don’t find anything, so good luck!
