Focal Encyclopedia of Photography (4th Ed.) clearly states that variables in linear perspective are object distance and image size and to change perspective one should change object distance and/or focal length (pages 730–731) Peres M.R.

Ansel Adams - The Camera

Pg 106

'It should be clear that "wide-angle perspective" and "telephoto perspective" are imprecise terms, since perspective only relates indirectly to the actual lens focal length. True perspective depends only upon the camera-to-subject distance.' (bolding added)
