Exactly the same way.

You just need another browser:page here. Name it 'in-shelf-view' and
use something like

 <div tal:replace="structure book/@@in-shelf-view" />

to embed it.

Registering the view for different "shelves" is possible, too. But this not
a simple view anymore - it's a "Multiview". You need an adapter for
(book,shelve,request) to do that which means, a simple browser:page won't
work and you'll be not able to use the object/@@view notation for that.
