Who better to learn all about Bonsai Trees than the Jpanese Bonsai Association? From the Introduction

What is Bonsai?
Bonsai is a tree or plant cultured in a container and is therefore small in size, but yet in its entirety expresses the beauty and volume of a tree grown in a natural environment. The literal meaning of bondais is "planted in a tray."
The difference between bonsai and ordinary potted plants is that the latter are usually plant species in which the flowers or leaves are the focus of appreciation, while with the former, the beauty of the entire tree and its harmony with the container in which it is planted is the matter of esthetic concern.

This is a great compilation. It begins with a collection of Bonsai Masterpieces which are featured in full color, full page photos. Master's Book of Bonsai goes on to describe to to grown, from seed or from a plant already in nature, how to cut and graft and layer and divide as well as how to care for a Bonsai, group planting and tools and equipment.
